on c4, anaconda has no idea about additional repositories of software. 
So the way I would do this is to put my files on the install media ( 
since you say CD's I am guessing that media is local to the install 
target machine ). and in %post use yum from within the chrooted install 
to access the packages and do the install. If its a case of only 1 rpm, 
you may as well just use rpm directly with --installroot

This should give you a few ideas to play with, see if that works and let 
us know either way
