What you're describing is very much an in-house custom application,
integrating a web-based front-end with a combination of kickstart
methods (pxeboot/nfs/ftp/etc). I have this at one of my sites. The
interface allows us to choose hardware type, network options, etc.,
while we append our own custom application package installations to the
%post section of the kickstart.
Wish I could share more with you, but I can't. :(
