Hi Jiann-Ming,

I did a RHEL5 installation recently with a ks file.  Upon receiving the 
'can't get the ks file' message I removed & then reinserted the usb 
drive and this caused it to be re-detected properly.

At this time it may also help to switch to a different screen 
(ALT+CTRL+F[1..6]) and see the device under which it is recognised i.e. 
/dev/sda1 or /dev/sdb1 etc
