A friend pointed out the answert to me. Turns out
RedHat 9 doesn't create the ks file correctly -- need
to put the quotes where I have in the following line:

raid pv.51 --fstype "physical volume (LVM)"
--level=RAID1 raid.39 raid.44

I am attempting a kickstart of a RedHat9 box. The
partion info comes from the kickstart file created
when I initially set up the server. I am using
software raid (raid1) and lvm. When I try to use the
kickstart, it gives me an error that I tried to use an
undefined RAID partition?
