kickstart boot question

Not sure if this belongs here, but we'll try anyway.

I have a kickstart server that works great. Running FC2 w/DHCP and reservations.

The way I install now is booting of a Linux install disc and when prompted type

linux ks=nfs: (using NFS)

the machines I am loading the kickstart image to have 2 NICs so I am then prompted for which NIC to use (ETH0). After that, everything is smooth.

How can I automate this? Booting from the CD and not having to type
linux ks=nfs:

And then not having to choose ETH0?


PS The machines do support PXE
