Out of curiousity, which kernel was the driver compiled for?
Does the version number match between installer kernel and your driver?

Also out of curiousity, how are you testing these?  Are you setting up
kickstart where a server is holding the image and you're making
modification to it or you have anaconda running in a test mode or
something else?

Let me know,
