Ubuntu does not automatically install system-config-kickstart, the utility used to create and customize kickstart files. Be sure that you install it using either apt or the Add/Remove Programs tool.
To begin the automated installation process, you create the configuration file that will be used by kickstart as an installation profile. You can configure the complex configuration file with Ubuntu's Kickstart Configurator. To start the configuration, click the Kickstart item from the System Tools menu on the desktop, or enter the system-config-kickstart command, like so:
$ sudo /usr/sbin/system-config-kickstart &
After you press Enter, you see the Kickstart Configurator dialog box, as shown in Figure 2.2.
