Cool how to skip NetworkManager in kickstart ?

hello frnds
I am making a kickstart installation dvd for fedora 10.

when installation starts it promts tht "Waiting for network manager...", and network manager gets failed, so installation terminates.
I am not writing anything abt NetworkManager in my ks.cfg, then wy it is going for tht ?? I cant understand tht..

is there any way to skip the NetworkManager ???

below is my ks.cfg

#--- Debugging (uncomment next line to debug in the interactive mode)

#--- Language and input support
lang en_US.UTF-8
#langsupport --default=en_US.UTF-8 en_US.UTF-8
keyboard us
#mouse generic3ps/2

#--- X-Windows (use "skipx" directive to skip X-Windows configuration)

#--- Network configuration
# Add some default or else Anaconda will pop a window and ask
network --device eth0 --bootproto stat ic --ip --netmask --gateway --nameserver --hostname vandan

#--- Authentication and security
rootpw vandan
firewall --disabled
selinux --disabled
authconfig --enableshadow --enablemd5

#--- timezone
timezone --utc Asia/Kolkata

#--- Boot loader
bootloader --location=mbr

#--- clear mbr
clearpart --all --initlabel

part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=50
part pv.3 --size=200 --grow
volgroup VolGroup00 --pesize=16384 pv.3
logvol swap --fstype swap --name=LogVol01 --vgname=VolGroup00 --size=176
