Yes, the pykickstart package (which is in FC5test1 and is what
implements the kickstart parsing) includes a ksvalidator program.  This
program can check the syntax of your kickstart file, that you're
providing required options, and so forth.  It cannot check the validity
of your package set, correctness of any scripts you have, or that your
partition layout works.

So it gets you some of the way there.  You can at least spot all the
stupid problems with it and save a couple reboots that way.
