If you Kickstart your systems through Spacewalk (that's what it's
meant for) you can associate a Channel containing the Tools to the
Kickstart Profile.

The packages in there will be available during installation phase
(before system registration) as well. So there is not need for having
them in CentOS.

Kind Regards
