I would use the regular kickstart %pre parts if the tools you need are
already there or could be imported. 
If you can pxe, what about trying warewulf diskless boot to achieve
what you need ( I have played with c6 + clamav + ntfs3g to
clean-up a friend win7 laptop).
xcat can also be a choice, although I haven't tried.
