Yes, systemd has taken over and you set the display manager by enabling it. So your
systemctl enable slim.service should do it assuming there is a systemd target file for
But where do I put this in the .ks file? I am able to get slim to

That's easy. Just take your rpms and put them in a web accessible directory, cd to
that directory and run "createrepo .". Of course you need to have createrepo
installed for that to work. Then just add a reference for your new repo in your kickstart
file just like your other repos... and then add your packages to your package list. If
you don't have a webserver handy you can do it on the same system with a file://
reference I think.
