Shalom,

system-config-kickstart
If not installed there is an rpm by that name.


It is a gui but it creates one.

There is a kickstart file created by system installation in root home directory that may be useful as well.

This applies only to RH based distros.

Re: how to make a kick start file in linux

As described above, use system-config-kickstart (is not installed by default).

I usually use a pre-configured file and then modify it via system-config-kickstart.

A pre-configured file can be found in any red hat or clone installation in /root/anaconda-ks.cfg.
