Custom Kickstart, Firstboot enable vs. disable behavior

I have a Fedora 12 custom kickstart install I'm working, and I'm having trouble with firstboot disabling X on startup.

When I disable firstboot, X works just fine after the reboot, log in and start my work.

When I enable firstboot, I go through the default steps (Welcome, ... date/time, Finish), then X fails to start even on reboot (inittab has the line "id:5:initdefault:"). I use the default config right now, but plan on customizing based on server role it when I get it to work.

Any ideas? It makes no sense to me.

You could try to include " xconfig --startxonboot " without the '''s to your ks file.
