I like the idea of avoiding this awkward step, but when I last looked at
instlux, it worked by modifying the Windows boot process to boot the CD
instead, and then undoing this afterward.  I don't like the idea of
(potentially destructively) modifying the user's Windows configuration in
order to do it.

Is there another way?
