Kickstart problem with warning prompt


I am trying to do hands off installation for RHEL5 using kickstart, everything is working fine but I have a problem with a warning prompt the appears, this waring prompt ask me if I want to delete all data on the disk. I should press yes or no. how can I remove this warning window, is there any option in ks.cfg to skip this warning message?

below is my ks.cfg

# Kickstart file automatically generated by anaconda.

nfs --server= --dir=/inst
key --skip
lang en_US.UTF-8
keyboard us
xconfig --startxonboot
network --device eth0 --bootproto dhcp
rootpw --iscrypted $1$2SHjXldp$iQNaS5hnb3NmCQ/OdCm94.
firewall --enabled --port=22:tcp
authconfig --enableshadow --enablemd5
selinux --enforcing
timezone --utc America/New_York
bootloader --location=mbr --driveorder=hda --append="rhgb quiet"

# Note that any partitions you deleted are not expressed
# here so unless you clear all partitions first, this is
# not guaranteed to work
clearpart --all
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=100 --ondisk=hda
part pv.2 --size=0 --grow --ondisk=hda
