SLES 9 and SLES 10 do not properly install from a network install source where all the iso images are copied on top of one another.
that's true. Where did you find documentation that it should work?
That is if you treat SLES like Red Hat the result is maybe an install maybe not but missing packages and broken links in the file system.
then don't treat SLES like a Red Hat system? It is none. Here is how to setup an install server on SLES9 and SLES10 http://www.suse.de/~ug/AutoYaST_FAQ.html
Is there a way to tell the installer to check the gpg keys per media before attempting an install and wasting a lot of time?
I don't even think we have any keys on any other media than the first one. So there is nothing to check
