Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Kickstart is not an installation method, it is a configuration script to automate part of the installation, which can be started in many different ways. Typically it is used as part of a solution where PXE is used to trigger an installation over HTTP, but that's only one way, could use a kickstart with a CDROM, FTP install etc.
No, I can't guide you. I can help you with specific issues, but there is no benefit in repeating existing standard procedures. If something is too long and too technical then often that's a sign that you should take more time to understand it in order to achieve a suitable and well built solution.
No. Again kickstart is not an installation method, just a configuration script. You can use a kickstart when booting from CD or floppy for example. A very common usage of kickstarts is in conjunction with netbooting using pxe but they two are not actually related at all.
