During Installation its quite difficult to change and not easily
possible (i tried by changing /etc/hosts in the background to my testmachine).
(suseRegister pushes the urls pretty directly into yast)

Later it is possible.

In 10.2 it will be a bit easier (in 10.2 alpha you can edit /etc/suse_register.conf to set the urls explicitly).

Ciao, Marcus
