Having read this thread, I still can't tell *when* you want a script to 
run.  If you want it to run during the initial install, then I can't 
make any sense of how that relates to a reboot.

If you want to run a command during the setup, then provide a kickstart 
file with a %post section:

If you want to run a command after rebooting and display the command 
output on the console, then use the openvt command, possibly with the -w

If you mean kickstart: I'm pretty sure that's your only option for 
running commands during the installation.
