Copy a few small files to root directory during install?

I would like to copy a few applications from my Vista install DVD to the destination root. This can be done the old fashioned way using the $1 folder in conjunction with <UseConfigurationSet> tag, but as warned, this copies the entire contents of the 'sources' folder (several gigabytes) to the root during setup, adding a considerable and unnecessary delay to setup. Is there an alternative?

Note that I simply want to copy these application folders from my install DVD to root during Vista setup. I am not trying to install the applications automatically during setup. I am not trying to inject drivers or system files. Also, I don't want to use additional media (thumbdrive, etc.), I'd like to work from a single install DVD.

Any tips greatly appreciated.

No need for that UseConfigurationSet

just mount your wim rw and add the files folders or whatever to what you're looking at, thats your drive
