Error at post install scripts for fedora 10 kickstart installation

I am trying to install fedora 10 kickstart on my server.
But I can't, because my kickstart installation hangs at post install scripts.
It is not showing any message & stopped.
What could be the problem in this case.
Please help me.

Can you post the %post section of your kickstart file. This will help with diagnosis.

You can also try adding

To the %post line like so

%post --log=/root/my-post-log
Anything that is echoed after that line should then be logged in the file /root/my-post-log on the new install (you can look at this file using something like knoppix or the rescue mode of the install disk if the OS won't boot for you after the freezing in the post steps.

Putting a line such as

echo "Started Post section of kickstart"
straight after %post should cause output to be put into the log file.
