 Toward a completely unattended Kickstart

"While Kickstart is extremely useful, it does have one nagging issue we'd like to overcome: You have to trudge up to the machine room to boot to a CD and type linux ks at the boot prompt in order to use it. I've said it before and I'll say it again; the role of an admin is to script himself out of a job. If it can be further automated, it probably will be eventually, even if what's being automated is, well, an automation solution to begin with!"
