Installing Redhat 9 from kickstart using loadlin

I am trying to figure out how to do this ....

I need to start loadlin from an embedded DOS on a ROM. I then need to have loadlin start a kickstart installation on the only hard drive available. Any thoughts on how I could achieve the above two steps - starting loadlin from DOS prompt and having loadlin install linux using kickstart.

Thanks for any help / pointers.

Are you set on loadlin and DOS? I use a boot cd described at

to clone my systems.

Works great for me.
