[CentOS] Method for autoinstalling new updates at install time (or very near to it)

I have CentOS 4.3 as well as RHEL4u3 and FC5 setup on my PXE/HTTP Server 
automating the install process.  However, I'd also like to apply any 
post update RPMS during installation also.  Is there any easy method to 
do this with out having to recreate the hdlist and other installation 
files?  My desire would be to have a updates directory that I can put 
packages into and CentOS would check to see if a newer version of the 
RPM exists in /updates.  Any thoughts?

My goal is to get away from the need to download 200+  megabytes of 
updates after each install.  I know I could setup my own yum updates 
server and  then point each new install at that instead of the mirrors 
but I wanted something slightly more automated.  Can anyone else tell me 
how their doing this?
