Default [et-mgmt-tools] template error on system add


I am slowly getting further i hope but when i add a system i encounter
the following

# cobbler system add --name=00:0C:29:717:4D --profile=centos4.4
There appears to be an formatting error in the template file.
For completeness, the traceback from Cheetah has been included below.
Error templating file /var/www/cobbler/kickstarts/CentOS-4.4-i386/ks.cfg
to /var/www/cobbler/kickstarts_sys/00:0C:29:717:4D/ks.cfg

Is there any way to get verbose output on what error is being encountered?

For completeness the ks.cfg causing the issue is below
