Previous version of anaconda had a bug where if it was unable to get the
kickstart file for any reason (bad URL, couldn't get network access,
phase of the moon, etc.) it would just fall over to a regular
interactive install with no notice at all.  This should be fixed in F7
test 1.  It will tell you there was trouble getting the kickstart file
and prompt you to fix up the ks= parameter you provided to make another
attempt.
