unattended centos install

How do a setup an unattended (no prompt) centos install from cdrom getting packages over the internet.

Ideally, a way to tell it answers to the basic prompts (language, keyboard, timezone), hard drive partitions, ip configuration, and "base" packages, plus any additional packages. Create the cdrom, boot from it and the install will do all the rest without any prompts.

and/or

create an installer cd with network configuration and have it automatically select text vnc, so after the cdrom is boot, can use vnc to the server and remotely answer the prompts for the install.

Ask your favorite search engine for anaconda and kickstart and centos (installation emits kickstart file at the end so you can repeat it as many times as you need)
