Creating kickstart installation.

I have created a ks.cfg file and placed in the root of my cdrom.
Added “ append initrd=initrd.img ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg” to the isolinux.cfg
When I boot from the CDROM, at the stage the installation is looking for the ks.cfg I receive a message on the screen notifying that the file couldn’t be found.
If I wait a few seconds and press OK the installation continues with the ks.cfg file successfully.

I also tried putting the ks.cfg in the initrd.img with the following in isolinux.cfg “append initrd=initrd.img ks=file:/ks.cfg”
I get a different error, but again after pressing the back button everything works fine.

Thanks in advance.

I found this bug explaning the problem,
The fix in the link bellow is in the source code of the version i am using.
