 From what I have tried in the past, adding linux before the options was 
needed. I believe the kernel ignores any option that it does not 
recognize. I am not sure if anaconda ignores options it has no way to 
determine or if it errors out.
I don't know if newer versions of anaconda add references to the kernel 
and only options are needed or if the linux info is still required.
