Description of problem:
I setup a ks.cfg with lang support ja_JP.eucJP and a text install and upon
trying it, I have some jumbled characters at the bottom of the screen and the
rest of the install proceeds in English. If I comment out "text" and do a GUI
install, everything comes up as Japanese as expected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (also in 7.1)
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set up ks.cfg with langsupport for Japanese and a text install
2.Create a boot.img floppy and do "linux ks=floppy"
Actual Results: English install with garbled text at the bottom of the screen
Expected Results: Japanese
I'll attach my ks.cfg.

Here's my kickstart file.
