Automatic boot cd install

Hello All,

I was wondering if it was possible to create a cd to automatically install RHEL 5. I currently have a cd with the boot.iso on it but then I have to specify the location of my kickstart file.

linux ks=nfs=<server>:/<path>

I guess what I want is a cd to already have that on it so I don't have to type it in continuously. I want to be able to pop the cd in and have everything already configured.

Any help would be appreciated.

Use mount -o loop /path/to/iso /mnt/mountpoint to edit the iso
