Can the IBM Installation Toolkit be used in an automated fashion, as in with kickstart?

    No, IBM Installation Toolkit does not offer support for automated installations as of now.
     
    Could you please describe your use case in details? For example, do you have a few servers and want to install Linux on them using IBM Installation Toolkit in an automated way? Would you store a kickstart-like file in a network server and use it as the installation recipe?
     
    Thanks,

    We'd like to automate installation as much as possible.  Some sort of integration with kickstart/autoyast would be ideal.  Perhaps make it possible to configure some sort of magic in a yaboot.conf or kickstart file, to point to whatever files are necessary for a complete Installation Toolkit-enhanced install.
