virtual host using YaST2. Unfortunately, and for no apparent reason, this

CD will have to set up an FTP or NFS installation source to make use of
the UML feature in YaST, negating the convenience of the feature in the
first place. "

While this is not very convenient, a lot of sites run more than one SEL
server, and the first thing they tend to do is to create a network
installation source - for convenience reasons. The very same is true for

you are planning to use UML on a large scale in a productive environment,
you will probably already have this requirement fullfilled.

I would compare this feature to something like "auto-installation", it is
a neat tool but you do not need it unless working with lots of similar
