Kickstart with nfs keeps using boot CD for rpm's


I'm trying to do a network install booting off FC6 disk 1 and passing the following aruments:

linux ks=nfs:10.x.x.x:/distro/fc6/ks.cfg

It finds my /distro/fc6/ks.cfg file ok, but then starts installing the rpms from the boot CD instead of off the network, so the obvious occurs. When it starts looking for disk 2 rpms, it asks for me to insert the second disk.

On the target server all my rpms are located at:
/distro/fc6/Fedora/RPMS/ where they're supposed to be.

In my ks.cfg file on <nfs-target-server>/distro/fc6/ks.cfg I specified:

"nfs --server=10.x.x.x --dir=/distro/fc6"

Anybody know how to force it to Not install using the CD rpms?

check maybe you forgot to remove the cdrom keyword in the ks file.
