Thankfully, our servers are already setup in the noc.
We have a need for a new install once a week.
While I appreciate the help on the automation and the partitioning,. we are deviating from the problem I'm reporting:
How to bypass the VGA prob and use the GUI install while using a KVM setup.
Should I escalate this issue to the RedHat bugzilla?
If an older version of CentOS/RH was able to skipp that prob successfully,. CentOS 5.x should have that capability, or at least allow to pass a parameter of 'novgaprob' or something like that.

Maybe this one task can be automated. When I was working on RAS for a
NAS, we had to be able to handle different HD configurations and sizes.
In the install/recovery image I generated on CD (this was several years
past), we used sfdisk to automatically partition the HDs. Using a fixed
"root" partition size, we calculated the rest of the disk as a % of
available for each desired partition. Worked great.
