how about something like this:

%pre --interpreter /usr/bin/python
import urllib
url="http://path/to/includeksfile";
urllib.urlretrieve(url, '/tmp/include.ks')


then somewhere in the kickstart (like maybe in place of %packages) you
would put:


%include /tmp/include.ks

and you could have semi-dynamically generated ks.cfg :)


silly, yes, but could be helpful.

the above code is untested but it "should" work.
