I don't know if that's it either. Look at the "mouse" option. 
(http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-7.3-Manual/custom-guide/s1-kickstart2-options.html)

It's marked "required". The documentation claims that if it's
omitted (or supplied without arguments), "the installation program
will attempt to autodetect the mouse." So--ahem--is it *really* required?

I think the bottom line is that the docs can be confusing.
