Automated linux installaton through kickstart?

We have a bunch of servers we are installing through the combination of PXE/DHCP/Kickstart/NFS files

My target machine has multiple NIC cards (eth0,eth1,eth2,eth3).
Everything works okay except when it reaches a screen where it asks me from which ethernet card should I try to install.

I want to always install from eth0. How can I specify that detail in DHCP or kickstart files.

The idea is that I want to totally remove manual intervention during the install process

When you start up the installer in kickstart mode you can specify which device you want use for the installation,
in your pxe config file for this installation where you have kickstart you need to add in ksdevice=<interface>
linux ks ksdevice=eth0
