wget options not working on kickstart script


Hi


I have made a kickstart script which works pretty well apart from its post-installation script. I have tried many things but still aint working hence i came to ask for little help

my script:
Code:
%post --nochroot --log=/mnt/sysimage/root/ks-post.log
/usr/bin/wget -r -nH  ftp://192.168.0.101:/myscript/* -P /mnt/sysimage/root/
chmod -R 755 /mnt/sysimage/root/*
cp /mnt/sysimage/root/myscript /mnt/sysimage/etc/init.d/
chmod 755 /mnt/sysimage/etc/init.d/myscript
/sbin/chkconfig myscript on

I tried all sort of variations but still not working. I cheked the ks-log and i noticed the following errors:

Code:
/usr/bin/wget: invalid option -- r                                                   
BusyBox v1.2.0 (2009.09.03-17:16+0000) multi-call binary                             
                                                                                     
Usage: wget [-c|--continue] [-q|--quiet] [-O|--output-document file]                 
                [--header 'header: value'] [-Y|--proxy on/off] [-P DIR] url          
                                                                                     
wget retrieves files via HTTP or FTP                                                 
                                                                                     
Options:                                                                             
        -c      continue retrieval of aborted transfers                              
        -q      quiet mode - do not print                                            
        -P      Set directory prefix to DIR                                          
        -O      save to filename ('-' for stdout)                                    
        -Y      use proxy ('on' or 'off')
For some reason wget option switches are not working on the kickstartscript. If i use the command on a terminal it works just fine.

any ides

invalid option -- r
It's telling you what is wrong. Busybox is using an older version, or a custom version of wget that does not have the -r option.

Thanks. I didnt know what busybox was nor i ever met this "term" by now. I used the wget without any options and it worked fine.
