Well in the F8 example kickstart I see this bit of craziness:

# make the initrd we care about
rm -f /boot/initrd*.img
cp /etc/sysconfig/mkinitrd /etc/mayflower.conf
ver=`ls /boot/vmlinuz* |head -n 1 |sed -e 's;/boot/vmlinuz-;;'`
/usr/lib/livecd-creator/mayflower -f /boot/initrd-$ver.img $ver
rm -f /etc/mayflower.conf

which leads me to believe F7 probably needs something similar that I
don't have with my basically blank kickstart file.
