One could download the 5.6 cr package
centos-release-cr-5-6.el5.centos.1.x86_64.rpm
and put it inside a local server from where to get and install during
kickstart post section.
But I think that it would work during installation of a 5.6 system,
but not work during an installation of a 5.7 system, as the command
"rpm -qR  centos-release-cr" says:

centos-release = 5-6.el5.centos.1
config(centos-release-cr) = 10:5-6.el5.centos.1
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1

Correct?

Could it be made a general package in the name (centos-release-cr) and contain
centos-release >= 5-6.el5.centos.1
?
Don't know about
config(centos-release-cr) = 10:5-6.el5.centos.1
requirement meaning though...
