whether my ks.cfg is wrong?

i have a problem with kickstart.Could you land me a hand ?
i want to install redhat 9.0 in one of my partitions in my disk and leave others intact. And my problem is I don't know how to config my partitions. One of my partition is formated into ext3 and one is formated swap. i want to install rh 9.0 on the ext3 partition.
So i write in ks.cfg with these sentenses

part / --fstype ext3 --onpart hda6
part swap --onpart hda5
part /D --fstype vfat --noformat --onpart hda7

i don't know whether it is right. i copy it from the kickstart file automatically generated by anaconda.
And my partitions is as follows:
/dev/hda1 4996M ntfs
/dev/had5 517M swap
/dev/hda6 4730M ext3
/dev/hda7 7797M vfat
/dev/hda8 10126M vfat
/dev/hda9 10001M vfat

Tnen i reboot and set the floppy as the first device, but i get the following error in the screen after i type "linux ks " when boot.

loading vmlinuz:..............
loading intriding.............
Boot failed: please change disk and press a key to continue.

Could any body help me?
Thank you.

I think that "had5" may be the problem - try "hda5"
