I've got that working with both a customized Red Hat 7.3 and Whitebox 3.0.

Seems close enough to mine, though I've only ever done it through eth0...
APPEND initrd=pxeboot.whitebox/initrd.img \
Don't be afraid to use ethereal to figure out what's going on. Could be
DNS. Could be the NFS server refusing the mount request (reverse DNS on
the client IP address can be important). Perhaps it is getting the
kickstart file, but not using it due to some option or other - check the
other ttys on the installer screen, maybe paste the kickstart file here.
It should be possible to snaffle the kickstart file through FTP, or HTTP
- with nothing more than the appropriate URL as the ks= setting.
