Thanks very much to Chip Shabazian (BofA) who advised me to put debug statements like sleep and echo and run the commands manually and check the stages. The actual problem was that I copied the file from a windows machine and probably linux messed up with the file format. I did a dos2unix on the file and was able to get past the errors below.

Subject: KickStart Issue
I need a help here. I have create a RHEL4ASU4 32bit source server and configured dhcp/nfs/kickstart on it. I am also using the initrd.img and vmlinuz from the first CD to pxe boot the destination machines. I use the pxelinux concept of kickstarting. Here is my default file
MENU LABEL pxe
append ksdevice=eth0 console=tty0 load_ramdisk=1 initrd=initrd-pxe.img network ks=nfs:192.168.203.180:/kickstart/rhelas4u4/i386/kickstart.cfg
As you see, I am passing the
kickstart parameters via additional boot loader parameters.
/kickstart/rhelas4u4/i386 contains the entire distribution of RHEL4ASU4
Now am using a kickstart configuration file (client's file) wherein he calls many post install and pre install scripts. I get the following error :-
IOError: [Errno 2] No such
file or directory : '/tmp/xxxxxx'
This directory is mentioned in the %pre script to be created. But looks like it is unable to.
Before that I get bunch of File "/usr/lib/anaconda/kickstary.py" , line numbers messages but no errors on that.
Would appreciate your help and direction regards this
