If you just want to use kickstart, it would be pretty simple to serve 
these via HTTP, and have a simple script in PHP or similar that takes 
the requesting IP and uses it to choose which version of the kickstart 
to serve.

I would suggest that the "right way" would be to kickstart all your 
machines the same way, and then use a configuration management tool 
(like Puppet or Chef) to customize them. This approach is likely to be 
more work, but also more maintainable in the long run.
