1) You can configure firstboot to run after kickstarting "firstboot 
--enable" in your kickstart file.

2) Do what I do.  Kickstart %post section that installs a rpm with 
updates fot yum repos as well as new ones.  I import all the necessary 
keys and do a "yum -y update" and then "yum -y install packagename". 
This way when the computer reboots you have an up-to-date system.  I use 
this process to add my own custom repo and I have a rpm for "desktop" 
systems whose dependancies are the software I want installed.
