Where did you get the media you are trying to install from? It looks like you didn't provide your system with an initrd.
media is F16alphaRC5DVD made from deltaiso used for multiple test installs.
DVD is -o loop mounted to /var/www/html/$arch of my LAN http server.
specified entries were as follows:
kernel http://Lan.Http.Server.Addr/$arch/isolinux/vmlinuz\ ks=http://Lan.Http.Server.Addr/ks/$arch-ks.cfg ksdevice=eth0
kudos to Chris - repeat testing with an initrd specified and this bug didn't repeat. Chalk one up to sleepiness and poor typing.
