It's very easy to create a Kickstart tree in Spacewalk and that to in a Automated fashion for provisioning hosts. All you have to do is create a Base Channel for CentOS and then create a Repo and then marry both and then at the time of Repo sync choose the option of "Creating a kickstartable tree".
