Kick-start File Problem Fedora 9

Hi Friends

For my Linux course I was trying to make kick start file.It works with a error. Means It stops at the Drive/Partition selection menu. I have select those partitions manually.

After manually selecting partitions & boot disk (sda/sdb) information up information it works well.

Problem is: I want to work it automatically.

How i created this.

We have Data recovery cards on computers in lab.There are other OS installed (winxp, fedora8, Ubuntu) sda. No changes are permamnet on this sda. So we have option to install it on sdb.

I have installed fedora 9. on machine sdb .Manully booted it thorugh grub(data recovery dont allow to boot from sdb).

Then Renamed anconda-ks.cfg to ks.cfg. Make a change in isolinux.cfg file at line initrd (ks=cdrom). Copy ks.cfg on iso image on DVD.

Then boot the system (another pc in lab). Tired to install fedora with kick start.

It work but stops at Partition/Disk selection menu.

Any Idea please

Good News ...

A update is I have gone trough the ks.cfg file. Some of the lines for disk/partition information is commented #. Means these lines are not red by anaconda so that the installion process stop there.

But still i have to test it.

Another question.???

Why these lines are commented out..

here is link to screen short of kick start file ks.cfg at my blogpost.

Any information/help please
