Thumbs up how to create a ks.cfg file for kickstart

Dear All,

I want to create a file (ks.cfg)for kickstart.
The file should contain the configurations in such a way that, while installing it should do the following tasks.
1.Package (Web server alone must be installed).
5.Automatically 2 users(1.john & 2.william )should be created.

Please send the postscript for doing this type of installation.
