In our case we have hosts all over the place so it can be different from
host to host but the SOP/kickstart mostly handles both virtual guests (the
bulk of our kickstarting)  as well as the physical hosts.  We've got a pxe
environment in PHX.

Yeah, we don't use cobbler yet.  Mostly because of time and need.  I'd
like to support that project and use it no doubt.  But in our case we have
very few kickstart files and they're all incredibly basic.  As ricky said
they do the base install, check to see if any special hosts entries are
needed.  Then yum update, then yum install puppet, reboot.
