The pain with %pre and %post scripts often is the ENV they run in or
syntax issues that aren't obvious.  You can always try running your %pre
script by hand from tty2 (press <ctrl><alt>F2) of a manual install for
correctness.  I would recommend double checking your %pre script above
for proper bash syntax.  Everything looks good, but make sure you are
closing out your 'if' stmt.  That could cause the script to fail to run
to completion.

Also, I assume you have it, but be sure to %include /tmp/partinfo in
your kickstart file.

Thanks,
James
