In the past, an up2date run has been done in firstboot.  It's kind of
horky as it's really only viable for "normal" networking and not for
cases which require, eg, pppoe or dialup. 

One thing that we'll probably be looking at enabling in FC6 is the
ability to get updates at install time so that you even install the
package only once.  But it will have somewhat similar constraints on how
we can retrieve those updates
