As I wrote - if you have a cd with the correct kernel, it should work. But I
am not sure if they do it like that.
As far I I saw it when I looked at the other day, it looked like they do
what fedora does:
Fedora 5 also provides a python script which starts the fedora installer in
a domU.

But they both are resource hungry - they both seem to need more than 200 MB
RAM - for an installer! I don't get why an installer needs so much RAM.
