Instead of using CD's, one can use a USB thumb drive to kickstart a Centos install.

Fedora provides some good documentation on how to do this. Fedora USB Docs

What I did to create a USB Install for einstein-db4.
  • yum install livecd-tools
  • insert USB drive
  • livecd-iso-to-disk einstein-db5-ks_kickstart.iso /dev/sdb1

Note, /dev/sdb1 was the USB device. This may be different on different computers.

Then insert the USB drive into the machine you want to kickstart.

Reboot, and boot from the USB.

Follow the install instructions, if any.
