Kickstart %pre not executing

Hi All,

I have prepared kickstart file - kick.cfg for Redhat 9, which is supposed to automate the installations.
Now the problem is that commands inserted in %pre do not execute.

I have done this :

kick.cfg :
some commands


chvt 3
echo "In the main kickstart file"
mkdir -p /mnt/xyz
mkdir -p /tmp/abc


--end --

Now, commands in %pre section do not execute. Can somebody tell me the reason for such problem.
