Dag,

Please see http://kickstart-tools.sf.net for ideas.  This project
started at least 5 years ago and was written by Perl guys before Python
was huge in Red Hat land  :)  I've taken over ownership of the project
in the last ~2 years.  We use the kickstart-tools-web perl CGI program
so our end users can make a kickstart floppy, CD or PXE configuration
with embedded ks.cfg.  It uses the concept of hardware profiles and
software profiles which are heavily customizable.
