I think there is a kickstart list where you might get better info, but
here are two ways I know of to to do this:

- put the interactive option in your ks file.  That will pre-populate
the answers to the questions, but allows you to change them prior to
action.  This affects the entire install, not just the partition

- Do not define the partition information.  It will only query you for
the partition info, not the other stuff you defined.

I do not know the specifics of your environment and goals, so can't
recommend one or the other option as best.

I do NOT know of a way to mix the above 2 options for the partition
information only so that you can pre-define the partitions, but have it
prompt you to confirm.  There might be a way, I just don't know it.

Perhaps check in the kickstart list, or do a google search for
"kickstart linux partition interactive" or something like that and see
what you might find.

Hope this helps,
