Boot Diskette
If the kickstart file is located on a boot diskette, boot the system with the diskette in the drive, and enter the following command at the boot: prompt:

linux ks=floppy
 
CD-ROM #1 and Diskette
The linux ks=floppy command also works if the ks.cfg file is located on a vfat or ext2 file system on a diskette and you boot from the Red Hat Linux CD-ROM #1.

An alternate boot command is to boot off the Red Hat Linux CD-ROM #1 and have the kickstart file on a vfat or ext2 file system on a diskette. To do so, enter the following command at the boot: prompt:

linux ks=hd:fd0:/ks.cfg
 
With Driver Disk
If you need to use a driver disk with kickstart, specify the dd option as well. For example, to boot off a boot diskette and use a driver disk, enter the following command at the boot: prompt:

linux ks=floppy dd
 


Have a look here http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-9-Manual/custom-guide/ch-kickstart2.html for the steps/preparation etc.. for the kickstart installation to have more info.
