You can also check the validity of your Kickstart file with the ksvalidator command. This command checks the validity of the file against any Kickstart syntax version that you specify. However, it cannot inform you about problems that would only happen at install time, for example if you specify part --ondisk=sdr and no such device exists. Example usage:
$ ksvalidator --version RHEL6 my-rhel5-ks.cfg
