Spinning a minimal Fedora LiveCD

I've been spending today trying to spin a minimal Fedora liveCD as a base for spinning various of other custom spins for easing future stuff, and for fun. The package list was based on Ubuntu-Minimal metapackage dependencies (of course, with some modification) and I'm using Revisor 2.0.5-15.fc8 for building the CD from a kickstart file.

The build went smoothly, however, it seems like I missed some dependency or something. When the liveCD boots, it complained during startup:

---------------------------------------------------------
WARNING: Requested /sbin/init binary does not exist on rootfs
---------------------------------------------------------

Dropping to a shell. Good luck!

bash: no job control in this shell
bash-3.2#


I have sysvinit in the kickstart and checking in the image file (after mounted them) /sysroot/squashfs.img/os.img/sbin/init is there.

Anybody know what dependency I might be missing here?? I'm going to checkout the rescue CD afterward to figure it out, but would appreciate some help if someone have solved this problem before.

After this one is working, I'm going to spin one based on freebsd 6.2 package selection ;)

Edit: I forgot to point to the kickstart file : http://pastebin.ca/879232
