Kickstart Failure



Hello.

I am testing Fedora Core 2 Test 3.  I am able to install it on multiple
computers in various ways with one exception which fails on all
computers: kickstart (both "linux ks=floppy" and "linux ks").

The process gets all the way to installing packages when it fails on the
"at-3.1.8-52" package.  The following "Error Installing Package" window
appears:

"There was an error installing at-3.1.8-52.  This can indicate media
failure, lack of disk space, and/or hardware problems.  This is a fatal
error and your install will be aborted.  Please verify your media and
try your install again."

I can install from this NFS point using "linux askmethod" at the linux:
prompt.

Googling this problem reveals that at least one other person has had
this problem but no resolution has been found.

The %packages section in my kickstart file looks like:
%packages
@ kde-software-development
@ office
@ kde-desktop
@ x-software-development
@ gnome-desktop
@ dialup
@ editors
@ admin-tools
@ system-tools
@ base-x
@ sound-and-video
@ printing
@ gnome-software-development
@ graphics
@ kernel-development
@ development-tools
@ text-internet
@ graphical-internet
kdemultimedia
-xsane-gimp
kernel
-openoffice.org
ethereal-gnome
gcc-objc
-slrn
quanta
-sane-frontends
-gpdf
-fetchmail

e2fsprogs
-xchat
-xsane
system-config-proc
nmap-frontend
shapecfg
xpdf
x3270-x11
grub
xmms
grip
kdegraphics
-gaim
expect
xmms-skins


Other than the "selinux --disabled" line, the top section has all the
standard global configuration parameters such as keyboard, firewall, and
bootloader.

Any help would, of course, be appreciated.

TIA!
