Fix for 'no driver found' problem with Kickstart?

The first time I just downloaded the initrd.img, isolinux.bin, and
vmlinuz and it complained that "No Fedora Core CD found which matches
the boot media" thing.

I guessed that it was because I didn't get the matching stage2.img?
So yesterday I downloaded a new copy of all 4.  (I had a terrible time
getting them as at first wouldn't let me
in and then when I finally got in it wouldn't let me access anything.
I finally found them on the ibiblio mirror.)

But now I get an error when Anaconda is starting up (the part that
remained on the screen long enough for me to copy is as follows):

..., line 24, in ?
   import rhpl.monitor as monitor
..., line 425, in ?
..., line 416, in read_modes
   raise_exceptions.StandardError("Invalid modeline in file: %s"%(line))
Standard Error: Invalid modeline in file:
install exited abnormally

I'm going to change the kickstart file to try a text mode install and
see if I get any farther.

I think I'm the 'someone else' refered to.

I found that updating to the latest(from development tree) versions of:-

Fixed the 'no driver found' problem. Which seemed to be a problem with 
the driver for the CDROM drive rather than the hard drive by the way.

Not sure if you need to update all of these but definitely 1 or more of 
the first 3 is required. I tried just stage2.img on its own first and 
that did NOT fix it.

So I guess whatever the problem was it has been fixed.

Hope this helps,
