Kickstart file not being found on mirrored disk



I have a machine setup that does RAID level 1 mirroring.
I create a kickstart config file and modify grub.conf such that it points to my vmlinuz, initrd and kickstart files.
My kickstart, vmlinuz and initrd files are in the /boot directory.

Filesystem layout:
# df
Filesystem           1K-blocks     Used             Available     Use%  Mounted on
/dev/md0             30233808    761376          27936624    3%     /
none                   1990496         0   1990496   0% /dev/shm
#cat /etc/fstab
/dev/md0                       /                             ext3       defaults                                              1 1
none                              /dev/pts                 devpts  gid=5,mode=620                               0 0
none                              /dev/shm               tmpfs    defaults                                                0 0
none                              /proc                      proc      defaults                                                0 0
none                              /sys                        sysfs      defaults                                                0 0
/dev/cciss/c0d0p3      swap                      swap      defaults                                                 0 0
/dev/hda                       /media/cdrom      auto       pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/fd0                       /media/floppy      auto      pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0

vmlinuz and initrd files are detected fine and my machine boots up fine until it fails to find the kickstart file.
After that the loader prompts me to input values.

Please find the extract from my grub.conf below:
/etc/grub.conf entry:
--------------------------
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-AS4.0-x86_84 ks='hd:md0:/boot/ks.cfg' ro root=/dev/md0
initrd /boot/initrd-AS4.0-x86_64.img


Please find the display on tty1 below:
* getting kickstart file
* getting kickstart file from harddrive
* Loading ks from device md0 on path /ks.cfg
* getFileFrom BlockDevice(md0, /ks.cfg)
* failed to mount /dev/md0: Invalid argument
* trying to mount CD device hda


I understand that the "partition" information that I am specifying in my path to ks is wrong.
However, I tried various other options but cannot seem to get it right at all.
Any help/pointers would be greatly appreciated.

thanks
Prasanna
