You can specify a VNC session and the connection
can be outbound to a viewer in listen mode.  You
should also be able to give most or all of the
other options in a kickstart file that can be
pulled via http from a web server.  When you
perform a manual install a kickstart file is created
that you can used for subsequent identical installs.
