Yeah, first boot is always tricky but FWIW it worked for me w/o cobbler restart. In anycase, it can't hurt, "jeder 'boot' tut gut" :)

Which kickstart btw? Default ks in Cobbler is empty and when I assigned sample_end.ks template to Fedora-9-x86_64 profile, it turned out that Anaconda complains about my minimal install tree. I'll need to add at least dummy repodata, looking Anaconda src now.
Other option is to specify in ks remote tree directly i.e.
 instead of
url --url=$tree
url --url=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/9/Fedora/x86_64/os
