This is a known issue. Just assign a size to the partition and it will work ok.
The size will be ignored for partitions with a '--onpart' specification, but it
is required by the parser of the ks.cfg.

Let me know if this works around the problem.

size with --onpart works around the problem. Thanks.

	This bug was not fixed for 7.2.  Please issue an errata notice so that 
sys admins can have a heads up.  I wasted too much time trolling newsgroups 
and Red Hat's non beta discussion groups.

				Thank you,
