I just had to change the install command to use ftp. I had to uncomment all of the drive partitioning commands. At first I was confused as to the partitioning failure, then figured out that the partitioning commands were commented out. Most likely to prevent an unwanted disk clearing. Only things: Did stop at the bootup to create a user id. Not a big deal in this case, as I was logging on as root to do a yum update. X was started to give me a progress of the install. So I will want to figure out how to get that in character mode next time. Just on general principles. The time to learn Kickstart was **LESS** than going through a manual install with the network, drive, and apps configuration steps.
