[CentOS] kickstart: transfer info between %pre and %post

I collect some info with the %pre script. But I really want to execute 
some programs, based on that info, during a chrooted %post.

The problem is, %pre and chrooted %post do not share any part of the 
filesystem. In %pre the hard-drives are not yet formatted, while in a 
chrooted %post the installer's root is not available.
How to transfer info between these two stages?

One idea would be to upload a file to the kickstart fileserver. That's 
ugly in many ways.

Any other idea?
