Hi Bryan,
Here's a few tips. Starting with a highres always leads to suboptimal metaphors. Think how you'd execute that at 16x16px. You're using way too many elements here. My understanding of the kickstart tool is that it creates a sort of receipe to perform future installations automatically. That's where you should focus with the metaphor. Think recipe, installation, automation, cloning... and try to minimize the number of objects required.
