hi,

i'm describing some tips to create kick start server.

For install apache
#yum install httpd -y
This folder for mount your iso
mkdir /var/www/html/rhel6

Mount the iso you downloaded to a mount point.
#mount -o loop rhel6.dvd.iso /mnt

Copy the file and folder of the iso to created dir
#cp -rvf /mnt/* /var/www/html/rhel6

now in your home directory you find a one file which name is anaconda.ks
copy this file into your dvd copy location..


start the apache service
#service httpd restart

Now,boot the system with DVD. when boot prompt appear then enter following :
linux ks=http://your_kickstart_ip/ks/ks.cfg
