If nothing else, having a prompt would increase awareness of kickstart.

It would be nice if we could improve upon system-config-kickstart and get nice 
interfaces for both creating and using kickstart files.  Having a prompt 
where a user could select the source of a kickstart file, and just basic 
information provided with that prompt, would allow even a novice user to save 
the kickstart file that was created by one installation and use it to repeat 
that installation.
