My writing skill sucks... lol... but in a nutshell I use a different
ks.cfg file, that makes the needed changes to the config files involved:
(watch for line wrap...) 

#place #Listen in  /etc/httpd/conf/httpd-xs.conf
sed -i -e "s/Listen/#Listen/" /etc/httpd/conf/httpd-xs.conf
sed -i -e "s/#Listen
80/" /etc/httpd/conf/httpd-xs.conf

# fix xinetd.d services
# xs-rsyncd xsactivation 
sed -i -e "s/" /etc/xinetd.d/xs-rsyncd 
sed -i -e "s/" /etc/xinetd.d/xsactivation  

# fix idmgr
sed -i -e
"s/BIND_ADDRESS=''/" /etc/idmgr.conf.in

# then clean up network 
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-lanbond0 
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-eth0 
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-mshbond0
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-mshbond1
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-mshbond2
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-msh0
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-msh1
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-msh2
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wmesh0
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wmesh1 
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wmesh2
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-lanbond0
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-lanbond0:0 
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-lanbond0:1 
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-lanbond0:2

# commit the changes
pushd /etc
git commit -a -m "custom changes done"

That is the meat of the changes you need to do. You still need to set
the network up and disable dhcpd and named, I do that in the kickstart
file at install time.
