Creates an apache vhost and serves a very basic kickstart file.

kickstart['rootpw']- set the root password. Use an encrypted string.
kickstart['virtual_host_name']- set the ServerName for apache2 vhost.
kickstart['mirror_url']- set the full URL to the "CentOS" directory w/ the rpms to install.
You'll almost certainly want to edit ks.cfg.erb to suit your environment. As is, the provided template is used as a minimal fast install for creating virtual machines to run CentOS 5. Of particular note, the following should definitely be changed:
- url - mirrors.kernel.org is usually fast for me, but maybe not for you.
- network - change the hostname.
- rootpw - this is an attribute, so you can change it by modifying the server. Use the encrypted password!
Storage / disks should probably be customized, as well as firewall rules, SELinux policy, and the package list.
