It looks like device 5C:F3:FC:3F:2D:4F does not exist on your system.  Verify you are using the correct MAC address.

Bugzilla is not a support tool.  Please contact your support representative for RHEL technical support or join #rhel on the FreeNode IRC network for community help.

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.
