kickstart issue when loading


Hello everyone, I have made a kickstart file and when I went to automate the install I was told:
"Unable to download the kickstart file. Please modify the kickstart parameter"
Could anyone offer me any advice on how to fix this issue?
Thanks
Kickstart file listed below: -->

There might be nothing wrong with the content of the kickstart file. The bold part tells you that the kickstart file itself cannot be downloaded/found

You do not mention how you started the automated installation, which options you used and where the kickstart file can be found (disk, NFS, ftp, etc). Maybe this will help:
- 31.8. Making the Kickstart File Available
- 31.9. Making the Installation Tree Available
