Just what is at:

I've got a routine to add rpms to a second repo on a usb installer key,
and then have the rpms incorporated into the base install. Interested?

If your copying stuff from the install media to the servers filesystem,
you would need to use %post --nochroot and the paths that are present in
the installer. The install media will be mounted at /mnt/source for
CDROMS/DVD, /mnt/isodir for hd/nfs, while the new system is mounted
at /mnt/sysimage.

Hope this helps,
