Just for kicks and grins, you might want to try rebuilding the ISO image
to use the images/bootnet.img disk instead of the images/boot.img that
RH's ISO uses.

The problem might be that the syslinux.cfg for every boot type automagically
has "local" appended to the arg list, which I would guess is causing anaconda
to die because it wants a "network" install in order to grab a ks.cfg from
and NFS server.

The other option is to just shove the ks.cfg onto image on the cdrom.

Take it easy, and
