"Kickstart is Fedora's way of replicating installation information. After installing the distro, it writes details to /root/anaconda-ks.cfg. (Anaconda is the Fedora installer, named so because it's written in Python. Groan!) You can tell Revisor to use this file, or a kickstart file saved from a different system. Setting it to boot with kickstart means the install disc will go straight into installing a replica of the kickstart. Anaconda will not remove hard disk partitions, so if you want to use this information from the kickstart file, make sure you have cleared the disk before installing on each computer.
