Hey,

for Node it's a bit different.
You can just use the kernel+initrd and some kernel arguments to deploy it via 
PXE.
No kickstart needed.

Our documentation is a bit lacking the details, but you can consult this docs:

http://red.ht/1vkmLRc

The should work for Node as well.

Great!
Let me know anything you would let us to know :)
