Add a local apache/httpd powered repo to your kickstart:

repo --name="sk98 repo"

'myrepo' is the pxe/kickstart server hostname and the kmod-sk98lin rpm
driver has been copied to /var/www/html/CentOS/6/x86_64.

Make sure httpd is running
# service httpd start

Run createrepo:
# cd /var/www/html/CentOS/6/x86_64/
# createrepo -v -d .

Fire up laptop and kickstart it.
