You could try creating and updates(check name not sure) directory in the
root of the installation tree where you have copied the remaining stuff.
Anaconda then automatically picks up the newer rpms for installation
ignoring the older versions present in the RedHat/RPMS directory. I know
this can be done in this fashion but have forgotten the exact dir name
or its location in the dir tree. You could get more information
searching the anaconda-devel-list archive. This has been discussed there
quite a few times if I am not mistaken.

Hope this is what you were looking for....
