If your installing from a minimum cd install , the packages needed to install in a graphical environment are not available. If you want it to install in graphical, you have to either use the full cd/dvd images, or  add the packages needed to the repo, and run createrepo. If you are using a kickstart to automate the process any reason why you want it to do the graphical installation?

 

Also a good option to have is:

 

reboot –eject

 

When it reboots after install, it will eject the disc.

 

Out of curiosity, do you actually need the “Dialup” packages?

Do you have a graphics card capable of displaying the GUI?
Can you post your entire kickstart file?

as harry said graphical installation is default option.

I put  these options in my ks file but it does not work!

install

graphical

----------

anaconda says: no graphical installation is available, try text mode!

I thinks it needs some program (rpm) to be add in packages section of ks file.

I want to have a minimal install(without X) but the install happen always in text mode  as opposed to graphical mode.

here is my ks file

timezone America/Chicago
# Package manifest for the compose.  Uses repo group metadata to translate groups.
# (@base is added by default unless you add --nobase to %packages)
# (default groups for the configured repos are added by --default)

Hi,
I'm not sure I understand your question.
Are you trying to have a minimal install but have the install happen in graphical as opposed to text mode?
Can you state what it is that you are trying to accomplish?
Cheers,
Harry
