Where should the kickstart file be placed in the PXE Boot installation for automated installation of systems?  Should it go under the /tftpboot directory structure or in one of the folders of FTP, NFS or HTTP?

What we do, and what may be easier, is just have the kickstart on the HTTP server.  Then you PXE boot with the kernel option appended.  For example "kernel /vmlinuz ip=dhcp ks=http://10.1.15.30/kickstart/kickstart.txt"
