Including an rpm for nfs install

Hi Everyone,
I am using a RHEL4 box as my FTP/NFS/DHCP/DNS server.
I have an rpm, which I want the clients to install automatically whenever they do a kickstart installation or a nfs installation.
Is it possible to do this? HOW?

You can do it in two ways.
1. If you have your own repo, just put that rmp in the repo and in their kick start file, just list it in the %packages section
2. You can script its install in the %post section by (within the script)downloading it from another server and invoke rpm -i
