I just used the 'autopart' command in the kickstart and it automatically put most of the storage in /home.

I believe in CentOS 5 the autopart command just did swap /boot and /

I realize I can manually partition all 60 of these servers but I'm trying to avoid that also like I said I would prefer not to set the lv/vg names in the kickstart..

Would've been cool if you could just do autopart -atomic like you can with Ubuntu.
