Works with rh kickstart, you tell the installer via tftp
(pxelinux.cfg - IIRC), something in the lines of (from memory, no
guarantee for correctness - there's a detailed kickstart docu
explaining it all):
append ksdevice=eth0 console=console=tty0 ttyS0,19200 \
You need a dhcp server + tftp + http/ftp/nfs server for something
like this and perhaps an install LAN, works like a charm, albeit
it's highly questionable if the work needed to setup can be
justified for one/two systems?;)
