You could start with the presentation I gave at last years LinuxWorld:

My biggest tip is to "yum install system-config-kickstart" (which I believe Chip mentions).

It can help guide you through the install questions and builds a kickstart along the way. That's a good way to see what the various options are (and is a bit easier than reading some of the docs for the first couple of times -- eventually you
probably won't need the tool).

Kickstart-list mailing list
Kickstart-list redhat com

That's a good tip, but for people who don't have X installed (for example setting up servers), the GUI based kickstart config tool won't work. I also had to go through this exercise but soon found a lot of sites on the net with good sample kickstart files. One thing I want to add though. If it's possible, setup sometimes like XEN / VMWare / Virtualbox / QMU / etc to test the CD ISO. It's a pain in the neck to first create the CD ISO with makeisofs, then burn it to CD, and then putting it into my test machine to test it.
