Ok, figured this out... It was in isolinux/isolinux.cfg ... but the Kickstart documentation still isn't very clear about the values of "ks=cdrom" or "ks=harddisk" (or whatever)... i.e. WHERE on the respective medias the file is expected to be.
Is it in the root directory for a cdrom?  Is it in /tmp/ for the harddisk?

  "langsupport" are deprecated...

Seeing messages about finding the USB mouse, but "failed to loading mousedev driver"
(or some such message).

  instead of a line number, it gives %s... grrr...

Is there an easy way to debug this? Because it's blowing out, and I sure can't tell where along the way it is... especially since the box reboots before I have
much of a chance to delve into things and figure out how far along it got.

I'll publish whatever scripts, etc. I come up with once I have things working.

BTW:  if anyone has a link for a Kickstart mailing list or IRC forum, that
would be handy too...


Any clues on where documentation for FC5 can be found? I've only found it for
