newbie woes, nfs, kickstart, LOOP_SET_FD


I am trying to use kickstart to nfs install redhat 7.3 on an AMD machine.

I have set up the system to dhcp boot.  I get the correct ip address
assigned to the client from the server and I think it mounts the correct
directory on the server where the redhat distribution is (determined by
alt-F3 and alt-F4). Then when it continues on it fails with the error

Specifically, the order of events are:

sending dhcp request through device eth0
nodns is 0
ks server:  file: ks.cfg

kickstarting through device eth0
nodns is 0
mouting nfs path
loopfd is 14
LOOP_SET_FD failed: Bad file descriptor

and on the "blue screen" the "Choose a Language" screen comes up.

I have scanned the archives and the web and I can't seem to get a handle
on the error.  The kickstart configuration file was generated using the
graphical program and is here:
