Fedora Core 4 Kickstart - Problem with packages over NFS


If i perform a Fedora Core 4 install by booting from CD1, and then selecting
NFS as the install method everything works fine.

If i then take the generated anaconda-ks.cfg file and use it to install
again, it fails at the Packages stage, stating that none of the packages can
be found.

If i comment out the packages section of the ks.cfg file, to prompt it to
ask me for the packages, all packages are greyed out and unavailable, and
all i can install is the "Minimal" setup, which is no good to man nor beast!

Every other aspect of ks.cfg works perfectly, but when i boot using the ks
floppy disk i have created, no packages are available when using NFS as the
install method.

If i try to use HTTP as the boot method (using "url --url";) it doesn't give any errors, but
continues to install from CD anyway.

Does anyone know why this could be happening?

The settings in the ks.cfg file are correct, and when i type them in
manually during a manual install, i can access all the packages without a

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!
