I'm trying to set up a basic unattended installation of ubuntu using only a kickstart file (no preseed) but I'm having trouble figuring out what files to edit on the CD to make this work. Using isomaster, I added my ks.cfg file to the /isolinux/ directory, but what else should I edit to make this an option in the actual install menu? I'd read about "editing text.cfg and isolinux.cfg" but I can't find any specifics about what to add. Thanks!

EDIT: I'm using the ubuntu 9.04 desktop ISO, 32-bit for the installation.

bump... Any ideas? I thought Ubuntu had at least decent support for this, but I can't seem to find any good references on it (the canonical whitepaper hardly qualifies as decent, at least for what I'm trying to do). Thanks!
