most of the install (that is minimal text) can be done now
with only the first CD. This should be sufficient to go to
the first restart (the one that launches Yast again) and
then, if install source lacks, go back to the install source

and this one should definitely find itself the ftp/http
mirror. I hope this will come :-)
