kickstart is an OS/system install setup over the network versus using the CD to boot the system.
http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Network_Satellite/5.2/html/Reference_Guide/s2-sm-system-kickstart.html

I.e. you have one CD and you can install/cinfigure one system at a time.
kickstart when setup, you can install as many systems as you can connect to the network and initiate the install at the same time.
You can preconfigure install (kickstart) profiles for systems.
