I don't know if there is a document, I just sorted it out one day when I had 
the itch.

Grub can boot kernels and initrds right?  And you can pass arguments to it 
right?  The CD has kernel and initrd files designed for network booting over 
PXE, these are suitable to get a box up and on the network to start an 
install.  Copy the kernel and initrd image from the images/pxe/ directory on 
the CD or on the install tree to your /boot.  Edit group and make a reference 
to these.  As for arguments, you can put anything here that you normally 
would type at the CD prompt, such as vnc, askmethod, text, kickstart, method, 
etc...  Reboot to this image and away you go.
