How would a kickstart user get the updates enabled?

I'm thinking the updates should be on one cd/dvd* by themselves, but 
obviously there should be a way to make Anaconda to look, and find out 
they're there. No problem for a network install, of course, there just 
needs to be a standard place for the updates.

Or USB disk or other location. 1 Gb flash drives are getting extremely
