They need to be visible to the system either by having them available on the
local filesystem, or by mounting an NFS share or similar. I accomplish this
by using wget in the %pre stanza. My cobbler template looks something like:

%include /tmp/packages_${hostname}

wget -P /tmp http://server/ks/packages_${hostname}
