The SUSE way to do a network install is to use VNC.
I've done it several times, sometimes just to avoid having
to walk across the room to use the keyboard.

During the first boot of the installation choose install and add the
parameters:
install vnc=1 vncpassword=secret

Then the install continues on term 1 untill it gives you the connection parms
you need to connect. then you can connect via vncviewer ....

After the reboot, you connect with vncviewer again to get the rest of the
dialog....
