Example kickseed file to add to install reference documents

Bug Description

The current automated installation documentation does not have a sample kickstart config [1]. Attached is a sample kickstart file for users to reference and edit to fit their environment. The file has been tested via NFS and cdrom install options.

Can this be added to the documentation for Precise 12.04?

I doubt you've really tested it successfully via NFS as Ubuntu's Kickstart implementation doesn't support NFS installation. :-) It probably defaulted to installing from the usual network archives or something.

Anyway, aside from that, this is great, thanks! I've added it to the next release of the guide.

Correct. The NFS test was a false positive due to changes in the test environment. That's my fault. Thank you for including this edit.
