Anaconda/Kickstart/GUI CentOS Installation

I just got this wrote up and posted on my blog. By performing this type of installation, you get a full-blown CentOS installation, complete with the RH kernel (supporting SELinux), root LVM, etc.

Let me know if you find anything I missed.

That's a really cool guide. I was just doing something like this with Ubuntu yesterday, but not on a Linode. Automated installs are great…I particularly liked your .ks example, as I've wondered what the equivalent of preseeding is for other distributions.

Thank you for the contribution. That's good stuff.
