Sounds good. Afterall, I am using the network card with the askmethod to 
select http to get to my local repo install of running through 6 CDs.

But this begs 2 questions:

How to access the kickstart via http (and where to put it, somewhere in 
the /centos/5/os/i386 structure?).

and

What to put into the kickstart to get it to finish in text mode? And how 
to set the xorg.conf size? THis will be a lot of reading up on 
kickstart. Been a couple of years since I did my own kickstart. I did 
figure out how to setup my drive info...
