Here is a Scientific Linux Kickstart file for minimal installs


I just had a relatively hard time figuring this out, so after much headache, here is a Scientific Linux 6.3 Minimal kickstart file that works.

Hope this helps someone.

Code:
## minimal scientific linux 6.3 install
## sz 

## Be sure that the scientific linux 6.3 install dvd or livecd is mounted/in the drive
