FC5 kickstart ftp problems.[Scanned]

Hi guys,

I am trying to get a kickstart install of FC5 working from an FC5 vsftp server.
kickstart config file:

I have copied the contents of the fc5 dvd to the root of the FTP server, and changed ownership of all files to kickstart:kickstart (the user called in the kickstart file)
However I keep getting an error when I boot from the FC5 CD using:

linux xfs acpi=off ks=floppy

Anaconda starts to load then displays:

Failed to retreive / ./repodata/repomd.xml
Failed to establish a data connection with the FTP server.

I am pretty sure the machine can see the ftp server as when I forgot to start the vsftpd service on the server the error was very different. I suspect that the client cannot see the required file.
Has anyone managed to get this working, if so how?!

Many thanks,

-Chris
