I have to believe that the default install uses some hard coded list of
packages set within anaconda and anaconda doesn't consult any external
cfg file by default.
That said, if you were intent on modifying your own installation DVD and
getting it to automatically run some kickstart.cfg file, you could
probably edit isolinux/isolinux.cfg to have an entry that appended the
ks=/some_kickstart.cfg file on that DVD (or simply type it in yourself
by editing the 'boot' parameters).
Note that you can have anaconda download/use a kickstart file from any
available method/medium i.e. nfs/http/ftp/floppy/usb flash drive/etc. so
it seems as though you are trying to hard.
