I have often thought it would be helpful if a bunch of kickstart files
were distributed on the CDs. That way people with uncommon use cases
can still be catered for without having to put confusing or
over-complicated gui options. For example, kickstarts could be
provided for:
- Everything installs
- Everything installs minus languages
- Very minimal install
- Different server installs
- Etc

Not only does this provide a good way to introduce people to kickstart
and give them example files to modify, it would help make various use
cases a bit easier to implement.

I'm not sure if this is the kind of thing the original poster meant,
but I think it would be nice to try for FC6.
