Working in VirtualBox or Qemu is probably the easiest way to get
screenshots of the installation.  The installation CDs need help staying
slim and rewriting the installer would add a lot to the weight, not to
mention cost a lot of work.  VirtualBox and Qemu are available now and
snapshots also facilitate exploring various choices during particular
stages of installation.
