[CentOS] Kickstart is my friend

I just had to change the install command to use ftp.

I had to uncomment all of the drive partitioning commands.  At first 
I was confused as to the partitioning failure, then figured out that 
the partitioning commands were commented out.  Most likely to prevent 
an unwanted disk clearing.

Only things:

Did stop at the bootup to create a user id.  Not a big deal in this 
case, as I was logging on as root to do a yum update.

X was started to give me a progress of the install.  So I will want 
to figure out how to get that in character mode next time.  Just on 
general principles.

The time to learn Kickstart was **LESS** than going through a manual 
install with the network, drive, and apps configuration steps.
