I have set up an Installation Server using the retail DVD, which is quite
simple to setup using Yast.

To install a new computer I just use a boot CD to start an installation via
NFS. (I used the boot image off the DVD to create the boot CD)

If you have a few systems to install I suggest you look at the
SuSE-Autoinstall function, with this you can define the software to be
installed as well as alter the config scripts to suit your installation. You
will find good support via the suse-autoinstall@xxxxxxxx mailing list.
