I am confused...
If you have indeed a second partition where you did put your iso, you should point to sdb2 and not sdb1...
In my syslinux.cfg (which is on sda1):
 append initrd=initrd.img ks=hd:sda2:/ks.cfg method=hd:sda2:/centos
In my kickstart:
  harddrive --partition=sda2 --dir=/centos
So it boots on sda1, but the iso files and kickstart stuff are on sda2...

Does the iso work or the usb key?  quite different...
How does the installer know that the RPMs are in custom.iso...?

> No such file or directory 'sdb1:vfat/iso'
