It all works interactively -- just the FTP/HTTP loopback mounted type
doesn't work with kickstart.

No, you just have a directory hierarchy like the following

-> somedir
   -> disc1
   -> disc2
   -> disc3

And list somedir as your dir to install from.  Since you've loopback
mounted the isos, then under disc1, etc, you'll have a RedHat dir.

The NFS ISO method doesn't even require loopback mounting... just put
the discs in a directory (named *-disc1.iso, *-disc2.iso, etc as they
are on the ftp site) and they get loopback mounted from over NFS.  Note
that you need to have a different directory of ISOs for each release you
want to install in this fashion.
