I have been playing with this for some time...  I haven't completed my
playtime yet, but my research indicates this:

Redhat 3 and 4 do not support referring to partitions by label, but 5
and 6 do.  Try using this line in your kickstart file and pointing it
to the label on your USB stick:

harddrive --dir=/ --partition=LABEL=blahblah

HTH,
