Error Downloading KickStart File


Folks,

I am trying to install OEL5 using KickStart.

1. I have kickstart file on my USB
2. I boot HP 580 system from CD Room
3. On booted first screen I have typed following commands,

a. linux ks=hd:/dev/sda1:/ks.cfg
b. linux ks =hd:sda1/ks.cfg
c. linux ks =file:/sda1/ks.cfg
d. linux ks=hd:/dev/sda1/ks.cfg


Nothing works for me , i tryed changing "sda1" to "sdb1"
I tryed all the front and back usb ports. I got an error that Error Downloading KickStart File or some time it said file doesnt exit.


Second option:

I tryed was that I put the Kickstart File and OEL iso's on windows box and installed the NFS share and use following URL.
I booted the system from CD rom and on first screen , i typed following

linux ks =nfs://10.32.14.46:KS/ks.cfg ksdevice=eth0 ip=10.32.200.3 gateway= 10.32.200.1 netmask=255.255.255.0



From Second option, it gave me error that error downloading KickStart file.

Anyhelp would be appreciated.
