Please ignore the Directory Server needs and requirement.

Hai why do you care about directory server? you just check what minimum requirements that they are talking. Rather asking so many questions i hope you can test it on virtual environment.

Can anyone customize the kickstart file for my usage.
Just help me with a simple working minimal CentOS < 250 MB.

Also, this Kickstart seems for CentOS 4. Will it work for 5.3?
