I'm doing a net install of 6.06.1 LTS Server.  It's working fairly well but I 
can't get it to tell the installer to go to my local mirror rather than  Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?  I've been 
trying all day yesterday to get this working!  I expect I'm missing something 

Here's my ks.cfg file:

#System language
lang en_US
#Language modules to install
langsupport en_US
#System keyboard
keyboard us
#System mouse
#System timezone
timezone America/Phoenix
#Root password
rootpw --iscrypted $1$gpRiqS7i$kIVjvD0SD1ZJg6Gu6s7Kf0
#Initial user
user --disabled
#Reboot after installation
#Use text mode install
#Install OS instead of upgrade
#This should make it use my local mirror but it doesn't work!
