linux scd0=cdrom hda=none ks=hd:sdb/ks.cfg
but now I get the message telling if I want a driver disk.
Again, if I select Back the installation proceeds reading from the usb-scsi virtual cd.
Any chance to avoid/skip driver disk prompt?

I'm trying to install f8 (and tried with rh el 5 too) on a dell 1950.
I'm using virtual floppy (for kickstart file) and virtual cd (for dvd iso image), that are emulated as scsi over usb.
Onboard there is also a physical cd (seen as hda).
Virtual cd is seen initially as /dev/sr0 and then mapped by udev to /dev/scd0.
Virtual floppy is seen as /dev/sdb
I'm able to boot from virtual cd and at boot prompt I can type:
so that my automated installation starts correctly using the kickstart file, where I have the lines:
During installation phase I get an error about not founding cdrom device.
At this point I can choose "back" in the screen and the installation proceeds automatically using the virtual cd.
Is there a way to tell ks (or in command line) to use automatically the virtual cd instead of the physical one?
I noticed that in ks docs there is:
cdrom— Install from the first CD-ROM drive on the system.
Is it the "first" word above causing me the problem?
I would like to have a completely unattanded installation path.... without necessarily pass through nfs or other network based installations?
I found suggestions about using idex=cdom at boot prompt and tried without success:
linux ks=hd:sdb/ks.cfg sr0=cdrom
linux ks=hd:sdb/ks.cfg scd0=cdrom
