We made a perl CGI called kscfg.cgi which gets pointed at by our PXEboot
kickstart target, a'la
label rh73-ks
  kernel vmlinuz-rh73
  append initrd=initrd-rh73.img.gz ramdisk_size=16384 ksdevice= 

All of the intelligence about what host should get what kickstart 
config is done in the CGI, which uses the HTTP REMOTE_ADDR variable
to determine the hostname, subnet, etc which cause different kickstart
config stuff to happen.

cfengine runs post-installation to do some bootstrapping and then
every hour until the Apocalypse :-)
