Question Starting a Kickstart Installation


To begin a kickstart installation, you must boot the system from a Red Hat Linux boot diskette, Red Hat Linux boot CD-ROM, or the Red Hat Linux CD-ROM #1 and enter a special boot command at the boot prompt..


What is that special boot command?

I believe the command you are looking for is

boot: linux ks="location of kickstart file"

Ex:

boot: linux ks=floppy
boot: linux ks=cdrom:/<path>

Here is a good resource:
