RH9 pxeboot doesn't read ks= boot parameter



Hi all.
 
I'm trying to install RH9 with PXE using kickstart.  After reading through the list, I haven't found any post that describes my particular problem. 
 
My problem is that pxeboot kicks off starts up and hits /sbin/loader...initializes the eth0 and then prompts for Installation Method.  My pxe.cfg is below so it should be just starting right up in kickstart, but it doesn't.  I've tried the ks=http: option but that doesn't work.
 
Some background
 
I have PXE working boot off off pxeboot/vmlinuz kernel and loading the pxeboot/initrd.img
 
my pxeclient.cfg/default file contains only one label... (rh9* files are the pxeboot files)
 
label linux
        kernel rh9vmlinuz
        append ks=nfs:10.10.10.10:/vol/exports/static/ks/ks-default.cfg ksdevice=eth0 initrd=rh9initrd.img lang=en_US console=ttyS0,115200
 
My nfs server contains the following exports file ( running on a sun box.  it has to be there sorry :( )
 
#vol                     perm   anan user
...
/vol/exports/static    rw   1000
...
 
I'll provide my DHCP conf later because I figure that's related to getting pxeboot to work (which it is) so if you want to see it ask.
 
After that I'm at a loss.  Any help will be appreciated.
 
Thanks
Noah
