Image from the CD, but getting the boot prompt, it is going to GUI interface directly to install, in the GUI there is no option to go to boot prompt.

where is your kickstart file??

you need to specify the location at the boot: prompt, like;
   boot: linux ks=ks.cfg

Have a look at the kickstart notes in the installation guide here;
   http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/Installation_Guide/Installation_Procedure_Overview-s390-Automating.html

section 18.3.5 I think!

Sorry, I thought you said getting the boot prompt...

So you boot from the netboot.iso file burned onto a CD and you don't get a boot prompt? what do you get just before it loads the kernel?

you may have to press tab or something. alas I've not had time to see RHEL6 myself yet.
