It's much easier to grab the DVD iso and use that instead.  There are a
couple approaches:

1) Loopback mount the DVD iso to an FTP/HTTP accessible filesystem. Very
quick and painless.

2) Copy the CD/DVD iso contents to a standard filesystem. If you do this it
allows you to copy the update RPMs to the same location, then use the
repository tools to create the repo meta-data. This method allows you to
install the latest version at once.

For the first case:
mount -o loop /path/to/5.3_DVD.iso /var/ftp/pub/centos_5.3_x86

Your kickstart url would look like:

  url --url

In the second case, follow the instructions here:
