Truly, my knowledge about fedora is too little, so i don't know either i can get the kick start file or no (it is not possible from machine because the OS is not installed yet !)
I'd like to know if it is on the installation DVD or it is created when installation is launched?
Thanks for help !
waiting for more informations !

The standard installation media won't look for a kickstart file, where did you get the cd from?

It's an OS for an industrial use (machine with fedora where some specific apps will be installed) but i have just read on net that the "kick start file" is an installation concept developed by Fedora, so it's possible for personal machine i think.
I wanna understand how can i get that kick start file and my be verify and correct errors on line specified on error message!

The kickstart file will be somewhere on the cd/dvd, probably in the root. If you check the boot menu it should point to the kickstart location with 'ks=...', try /syslinux/syslinux.cfg.
