Unless it hangs installing something like glibc...

It is just a kernel paramater.  You put it in the grub kernel line like
any other.

What disk images?

Looking at the script you can see what files are copied:
cp /strw4/system/kickstart/isolinux/vmlinuz $bootdir
cp /strw4/system/kickstart/isolinux/initrd.img $bootdir

The "isolinux" directory is the one from the ISOs.
