Redhat kickstart doesn't allow for prompts as it was meant to do "canned
installs". I believe with investigation and experimentation on your part
it should be possible to use the vanilla centos 5.1 disks to manually
partition and install the base "text mode" only, then create the
acidrepo text file in /etc/rc.d with: http://dl.allstarlink.org on the
first line. You should then be able to download phase1.sh and run it in
/etc/rc.d just like the installer would.
