I would think it would be a whole lot easier to use kickstart instead of
messing with the installer.

It wouldn't be to hard to modify the kickstart configurator to generate
the kickstart ks.cfg, append the mythinstall stuff to the post section and
create a new boot.img with the ks.cfg on it.  That way it wouldn't require
modifying the installer each time a new redhat is released.
