Unhappy error opening: kickstart file

Hi all,
I want to use kickstart to install Red Hat Linux 8.0 via ethernet.
It's worked, I install Linux 8.0 via FTP without kickstart.
But it always can't find the ks.cfg when I install Linux via FTP with kickstart.
My syslinux.cfg is listed as belowing:

default ks
prompt 0
timeout 600
display boot.msg
F1 boot.msg
F2 options.msg
F3 general.msg
F4 param.msg
F5 rescue.msg
F7 snake.msg
label linux
kernel vmlinuz
append initrd=initrd.img lang= devfs=nomount ramdisk_size=9216
label text
kernel vmlinuz
append initrd=initrd.img lang= text devfs=nomount ramdisk_size=9216
label expert
kernel vmlinuz
append expert initrd=initrd.img lang= devfs=nomount ramdisk_size=9216
label ks
kernel vmlinuz
append ks=file:/tmp/ks.cfg initrd=initrd.img devfs=nomount ramdisk_size=9216
label nofb
kernel vmlinuz
append initrd=initrd.img lang= devfs=nomount nofb ramdisk_size=9216
label lowres
kernel vmlinuz
append initrd=initrd.img lang= lowres devfs=nomount ramdisk_size=9216

What's wrong with my syslinux.cfg?
Thank you very much for your help.
