Fedora 10 Kickstart install fails at network configuration


I'm attempting to automate a Fedora 10 installation, but anaconda will either outright fail (in graphical mode) or stop and wait for me to configure network (text mode). When it fails in graphical mode, it throws an unhandled exception:

AttributeError: Network instance has no attribute 'gateway'.

Of course, in the copy of ifcfg (shown in the exception details), everything appears as it should:

DEVICE=eth0
DHCPCLASS=
DNS1=172.16.0.1
HWADDR=08:00:27:96:dc:96
IPADDR=172.16.0.253
NETMASK=255.255.0.0


ks.cfg:

install
url --url=<url-to-fedora-10-x86_64>
lang en_US.UTF-8
keyboard us
network --bootproto=static --ip=172.16.0.253 --nameserver=172.16.0.1 --netmask=255.255.0.0 --hostname=<hostname> onboot=on
rootpw password
firewall --service=ssh
authconfig --enableshadow --passalgo=sha512
selinux --disabled
timezone --utc America/New_York
bootloader --location=partition --driveorder=sda,sdb,sdc,sdd --append="rhgb quiet"

Am I missing something obvious? I mean, I guess I can't expect to get it right on my first try... it's just that everything else seems to work (and the system installs properly in text mode if I manually configure the network information when it fails).

Also doesn't work with this ks.cfg:

install
url --url=<url>

keyboard us
network --bootproto=static --ip=172.16.0.253 --nameserver=172.16.0.1 --netmask=255.255.0.0 --gateway=172.16.0.1 --hostname=<hostname> --onboot=on
rootpw password
firewall --service=ssh
authconfig --enableshadow --passalgo=sha512
selinux --disabled
timezone --utc America/New_York
bootloader --location=partition --driveorder=sda,sdb,sdc,sdd --append="rhgb quiet"
# The following is the partition information you requested
# Note that any partitions you deleted are not expressed
# here so unless you clear all partitions first, this is
# not guaranteed to work
