Where did you get the media you are trying to install from?  It looks like you didn't provide your system with an initrd.

Comment 3 Robert Lightfoot 2011-08-17 13:35:57 UTC
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

initrd http://Lan.Http>server.Addr/$arch/isolinux/initrd.img

Comment 4 Robert Lightfoot 2011-08-17 19:51:09 UTC
kudos to Chris - repeat testing with an initrd specified and this bug didn't repeat. Chalk one up to sleepiness and poor typing.
