Runs the firstboot script from the master machine during the first bootup after an OS installation.

This script is created during the kickstart installation and placed in either the rc3.d or rc5.d startup directory depending on the default run level of the machine. If the kickstart template designates no X configuration, the default level is 3 (rc3.d), otherwise it is 5 (rc5.d). The script is deleted after it has run.
