Does RHES/RHAS have anything like SUSE AutoYAST?

In the SUSE Linux world, there is an AutoYAST tool that will let you script the OS install - every aspect, from partitioning to package selection to user IDs. Its all written into an XML file you can manage thru a GUI or even edit directly if you want.

Is there anything like this with RHAS/ES v2.1 or later? If so, is it part of the distro, or a 3rd-party tool?

Yes, it's called Kickstart, it is part of the distro and you may find more info here:

When you install RHEL/CentOS/Fedora, it creates a file /root/anaconda-ks.cfg. The only thing you have to do is uncomment the partition information. Afterthat, you can install using this file by entering this at the CDROM prompt:

linux text ks=floppy:/anaconda-ks.cfg

if the file is on a floppy.
