Document that RHEL6 and lower cannot kickstart from lazy repositories
The version of Anaconda that ships with EL6 does not follow HTTP 302 redirects. For this reason, it is not possible to kickstart EL6 or less from an `on_demand` or `background` repository that doesn't already have all the necessary files downloaded.
This should be noted in the alternate download policy documentation prior to the release of 2.8.

It turns out I made the same configuration error the original reporter made. The VM hostname resolves on the host machine, but not on other guest machines. The default value for the `redirect_host` is the FQDN of the host. Therefore it was possible to start the kickstart process, but once the guest booted and started requesting addition content, it failed to resolve the hostname of the repository. The result was the initial request would arrive, get a HTTP 302 with an unresolvable host and no second request would appear on the server side.
