How do you boot?
    From CD or from the floppy?
How do you start the installer?
    Do you run `linux ks=floppy` when you boot, or just hit enter?
Where is your kickstart file?
    Did you place it on the CD, or on the floppy?

If have have a bootable CD-Rom, the ks.cfg needs to be in the diskimage
that's burned onto the CD's boot sector.
If you boot form floppy, it needs to be there.

Kickstart CD's have worked fine for me for the last year atleast, same for
quite some other people on this list.
