Description of problem:

This is surprising to me, although perhaps it is intended behavior.  The following kickstart partitioning:

clearpart --linux
part /boot --size=200
part / --size=12000 --grow
part swap --recommended

on a system with more than one disk results in / being on different disk.  Also present in RHEL 6 beta.
Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2010-04-23 15:57:18 EDT
--grow without a maxSize tells kickstart to grow it as large as possible.  Since there's more space on your second disk (what with /boot and swap being on the first), it prefers to move the / partition over to that disk.
