Kickstart Configurator allows you to create or modify a kickstart file using a graphical user interface, so that you do not have to remember the correct syntax of the file.

To use Kickstart Configurator, you must be running the X Window System. To start Kickstart Configurator, select Applications (the main menu on the panel) => System Tools => Kickstart, or type the command /usr/sbin/system-config-kickstart.

As you are creating a kickstart file, you can select File => Preview at any time to review your current selections.

To start with an existing kickstart file, select File => Open and select the existing file.
