after looking thru above guide, it hit me that my
search was improper.

tried search again using single word 'kickstart'.

a big diff.

best of which;


shows step by step instructions with graphics of
the 'kickstart configurator'.

much better then what the red hat and centos
instructions show, and all contained on 1 page. ;=)

again, thanks for your help. you put me in right
direction and correct spelling.
