Pretty much what I do too. I just use CD1 to boot off. Not having the
CDROM drive to boot from is too much hassle, IMHO. But I'd be tempted

I have toyed with using autoyast a couple of times, and although it
would be pretty handy, I don't really do enough installs to warrant the
effort in setting it up etc.
