or, fairly simply:

You setup a web app that takes the info on what the user wants on the
box and stores it in a db. Then it returns a url encoded to retrieve a
ks.cfg from a cgi based on the info in the db.

Then for the ks you specify the location of the ks.cfg as the
aforementioned url.

That's it.
