I just created a custom USB key.
try something like this :
http://smorgasbork.com/linux/35-linux/59-building-a-custom-centos-5-kickstart-disc-part-2
but instead of creating a custom iso, create a directory in DATA 
partition named centos and put the original iso file in it

in ks.cfg :

harddrive --partition=sdb2 --dir=/centos

and in syslinux.cfg :

  append ks=hd:sdb2:/ks.cfg method=hd:sdb2:/centos initrd=initrd.img

hope that helps
