Unhappy RHEL 5 PXE Server configuration

I have to install Fedora Core 9 on at least 50 computer machines(clients).
I want to make unattended network installation where my Fedora files will be kept on an RHEL 5(Server)machine. How can I configure my RHEL 5 to PXE install these 50 clients with KickStart? What all RPMs do i need and what all configurations are needed?

This should get you on your way: How can I use a Pre Execution Environment (PXE) to install Red Hat Enterprise Linux?

The process really doesn't change much, if at all, for the various RHEL, Fedora, CentOS, ... releases.

detailed explanations and configs (you need to be able to translate debian into rhel - which is very easy )
