chkconfig kdump on

This isn't enable kdump.

You have to modify the bootloader configuration to pass a crashkernel string on
the kernel command line.

Perhaps you should run system-config-kdump (or firstboot) on a freshly installed
system to enable kdump, then examine /boot/grub/grub.conf and /etc/kdump.conf to
see what needs to be configured before the service can be fully enabled. Once
you have modified the kernel command line in the bootloader configuration you
will need to reboot your system so that the new settings take effect.

Once you have done this, it will be clear to you what you need to do in your
kickstart %post.
