From http://www.redhat.com/magazine/024oct06/features/kickstart

The following table describes some of the Anaconda command line options:
lowres Force GUI installer to run at 640x480.
vnc Enable VNC-based installation. You will need to connect to the machine using a VNC client application.
vncpassword=<password> Enable a password for the VNC connection. This will prevent someone from inadvertantly connecting to the VNC-based installation. Requires 'vnc' option to be specified as well.
vncconnect=<host>[:<port>] Once installation is up and running, connect to the VNC client named <host>, and optionally use port <port>. Requires 'vnc' option to be specified as well.
ks=cdrom: Kickstart from CDROM
ks=nfs:<path> Kickstart from NFS.
ks=<url> Kickstart via HTTP.
ks=hd:<dev> Kickstart via harddrive (dev = 'hda1', for example)
ks=file:<path> Kickstart from a file (path = 'fd0/ks.cfg')
ks=ftp://<path> Kickstart from FTP.
ks=http://<path> Kickstart from HTTP.
lang=<lang> Language to use for the installation. This should be a language which is valid to be used with the 'lang' kickstart command.
keymap=<keymap> Keyboard layout to use. Valid values are those which can be used for the 'keyboard' kickstart command.
ip=<ip> IP to use for a network installation, use 'dhcp' for DHCP.
