I use a mount in %post in my kickstart file, however,
this is for mounting an NFS drive during a network install.

It works fine.

Could you change the line into:

mount -t iso9660 /dev/hda /tmp/one >/root/mount.log 2>&1

and look into /root/mount.log after reboot and see if there's an error

Maybe it's because /dev/hda is already mounted?

Try adding a

df >/root/df.log 2>&1

and see which mounts are available.
