[CentOS] netboot, vnc and no keyboard/mouse/monitor

hey guys,

I just created a custom netboot cd, that launches and loads from a  
http source, but connects to a vnc listening viewer. All in all, not  
hard to do, but what is different with this one is that it skips the  
media check, has no prompts and allows you to start the install on a  
machine that has no keyboard/mouse/monitor. Was handy for me as when i  
have some boxes to load, I just plug in power and ethernet in the  
corner (or where ever I have room) and go through the install.

I know it also works with a cd as a source (if you use it from cd 1),  
and assume it would also work with a DVD (have not tested yet).

If you would like it, I can add to the wiki if anyone would like it.

DNK
