is there something wrong with my answerfile or ?
It looks like device 5C:F3:FC:3F:2D:4F does not exist on your system. Verify you are using the correct MAC address.

You can't use the MAC address like that in RHEL5. Sorry. You can specify a network device by MAC address on the command line with ksdevice=, but not in the kickstart file itself.
