    You have to add in your IP options to the boot line. ip=dhcp if you want to use DHCP. If you're using a host name for the server containing the kickstart file, try using the IP instead to see if you're having DNS problems. Also, did you make sure file permissions and SELinux contexts were applied appropriately to your kickstart file?

    DNS works correct for me
    I added DHCP in the kickstart file and selinux is enabled and file permissions are 777
    When i kept the mount CD in the html folder(http method) , when given direct link of cd it does the installation normally.
    But to get it automated i am using kickstart , but it doesnt recognise the kickstart file.
