Default Any way to initiate a kickstart from shell prompt?

Hi all,

I've set up a CentOS flash stick using the LiveCD tools, then dumping
that onto flash with a persistent overlay - instructions here:

This gets me to a prompt in which I can do recovery stuff, but I'm
curious to know if it's possible to initiate a kickstart install onto
the local disks from that prompt.

I've got a separate stick that appends ks= lines to boot different
kickstart files, but I'd really like to have the ability to do this on
the non-auto-install stick too.

Is this possible? Is there a command that kicks this off?
