See the usb based install thread.

That one is more for pre-populating the yum cache before a yum upgrade,
or for an anaconda upgrade using the preupgrade hooks present in
anaconda. Distribute the repo on a squashfs.img, with scripts that would
mount the image, and start yum with a repo file pointing to the now
local repo. In the anaconda case, that would be a bit different, but
do-able. Just have to still test if there is space savings to be had
before I look at anaconda.
