Don't know which documentation you're talking about, but I'll explain
how my PXE setup works.

Do you want to kickstart? Or do you want to interactively answer all the
anaconda prompts (partitions/packages/etc.)? You don't *need* to
kickstart - PXE just replaces the floppy or CD as the place to load the
first stage from.

My dhcpd.conf:

next-server		1.2.3.4;
filename		"/tftpboot/pxelinux.bin";


My /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default:

serial 0,9600
default ks
prompt 1
timeout 30
label text
  kernel vmlinuz
  append initrd=initrd.img text devfs=nomount ramdisk_size=8192
label expert
  kernel vmlinuz
  append expert initrd=initrd.img devfs=nomount ramdisk_size=8192
label ks
  kernel vmlinuz
  append ks=nfs:1.2.3.4:/nfsdir initrd=initrd.img lang= devfs=nomount ramdisk_size=8192

You'd probably want to use "default text".


Cheers,

Phil
