Is the problem with taking the screenshots or is it laying it out for 
printing?  If capturing is the problem, and if sysinst will work with a 
serial console, one could install with a controlling xterm or use a tool 
capable of the making text screenshots/hardcopy (such as GNU screen, but 
it won't preserve colors).
