Please don't shout!

Have a look at http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/KickStart at the bit about creating a log file for your script. That might give you a clue about what's going on.

Thanks for the info I found out that I may probably need to add the chroot option to the post section since I have some copying of scripts from the media

The post-install script is run in a chroot environment; therefore, performing tasks such as copying scripts or RPMs from the installation media do not work.

I thought that you had this thread for the post-install-firstboot-tweak issue?
