FC6 fails during package installation ~or~ package dependency check

I have been banging my head against a wall for about a week now. I am attempting to install FC6 via PXE and kickstart to a shuttle machine. It has 1G RAM, 300G SATA x2, 2600+ Atholon, and mother board is stock on the bare-bones Shuttle-X line.

I have set the install to pull from an URL, a NFS, and a local source. None of these options have been fruitful. For giggles, I did a KS with my FC3 repo via URL, and it worked with no problem. I blew away my local repo of FC6, and re-rsync'd from kernel.org. Pulled down a 'clean' copy of the FC6 DVD and checked the check sum. Still no love.

My PXE config file is as follows:
default local
timeout 30
prompt 1

label local
localboot 0
label ks
kernel vmlinuz-fc6
append text nofb acpi=off apm=off initrd=initrd-fc6.img ks=nfs:install:/var/install/kickstart/fs-ks.cfg ksdevice=eth0
And the Key part of the KS file:
url --url http://install/fedora/6/i386/os
#nfs --server=install --dir=/var/install/fedora/6/i386/os
lang en_US.UTF-8
langsupport --default=en_US.UTF-8 en_US.UTF-8
keyboard us
xconfig --card "S3 UniChrome" --videoram 16384 --hsync 31.5-37.9 --vsync 50-70 --resolution 800x600 --depth 16
network --device eth0 --bootproto static --ip * --netmask * --nameserver * --hostname * --gateway *

rootpw --iscrypted *****************

bootloader --location=mbr

zerombr yes
clearpart --all



%post --interpreter /bin/sh
echo "*** running script ***"
Any help will be most welcomed!


On a side note, why does anaconda not install the bootloader in the mbr when you specify "bootloader --location=mbr"?
