This paper suggests considering Kickstart Configurator (KC).
This was one of the first tools I tried. I found it unsatisfactory.
It choked on reading a network configuration with a secondary dns server.
I don't like the way it writes it's kickstart files. I write my kickstart
with the commands in a logical order that makes more sense to me.
After I make changes using KC the order of the commands is
scrambled. And lines I have commented out because I don't want them
in the current config, but may change my mind and reinstate them
later just disappear.
Think there was one more issue but I can't remember it right now.
Anyway I decided it way more trouble that it was worth, and
stopped using it.
