Is there any inst_ldap-client we could use for a custom installation? We
would like to set up the ldap without going into the inst_user.ycp.

The problem we are in now is that inst_user trys to show the add new
user dialog, and we do not want this to be shown, even when we accept
the default ldap configuration. Right now we are patching inst_user.ycp
but I understand this is not the way.

Any pointers?

All openSUSE or SLES/SLED installations are defined in a product control
file. This file is part of an installation repository
(CD/HTTP/whatever). If you don't want some steps and/or if you want to
add or modify some steps. Change that control file, or create additional
control file and an Add-On product that would modify the current control

We use this for additional products built on SUSE Linux Enterprise and
openSUSE has the very same functionality built-in.

See this documentation:

See also:
especially control.openSUSE.xml (the current 11.0 control file)
and add-on-template_installation.xml (special workflow for add-ons)

And especially for your case, your probably need to create your own Add-On
Product (see,
with installation.xml (which is the file describing the Add-On installation
workflow = the role of control.xml on the base product) where you defined own
steps replacing current inst_user (or even inst_auth).
