Not sure what's going on here, I tried a kickstart install on scsi
drives (disabled the IDE controller for the HD, the CDROM was still
enabled) and it worked just fine.  I tried a combination of ext2 and xfs
filesystems, that worked too.  I don't have any RAID device to test it

Below is the ks.cfg file I used (stripped of comments...)

mouse  none
timezone --utc US/Central
auth --enablemd5 --useshadow
rootpw kickmeRH
lilo --append "mem=128M" --location partition
zerombr no
