Ie install without using sysinst...

Most of sysinst is actually about disk partitioning - which gets very tricky
unless you want 'all of the only disk'.

All you actually need to do is partion the disk, create the filesystems,
extract the sets and make the disk bootable.
+ any local config options that sysinst doesn't help with much.
