Fedora Core and KickStart

I just posted a copy of an example kickstart configuration script I use here at work when I need to install Fedora on a server. Almost all the installs I do these days are network installs via our local mirror server. Network installs are nice because you can do unattended installs (you don't have to swap CDs). Add on top of that kickstart and you can have an almost 100% hands off install.

Simply copy the ks.cfg to a floppy disk and boot the first Fedora Core CD and type linux ks=floppy at the prompt. It should launch the installer with the options you specified in the ks.cfg. The newer Fedora Cores have a cool utility to help you build that ks.cfg file, it's called system-config-kickstart, check it out.
