If you're using RHEL5 or FC6 or later, you can use ksvalidator, which is
part of the pykickstart package.  Of course, you'll need another machine
to do this.

Also, ksvalidator can't detect problems like incorrect partitioning.  It
can only check the syntax of your kickstart file and some things that it
doesn't need the installation environment to do.
