I have been using a kickstart file to install many servers in our environment.  The problem that I've run into is when I need to install to a server that is configured with trunk ports.  For now, I've lived with recompiling the iso to include the kickstart file.  But I would prefer to use the default iso and just use `linux ks=http://etc..etc../ks.cfg`.  So my problem now is that, although this works just fine if I have access ports configured, since the `asknetwork` option for anaconda doesn't allow for a VLAN tag to be set.
