if [ ! -e /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko ]; then
    echo "installing NVIDIA kernel module. This takes some time."
    /root/ --no-network -s -K -n

And this removes the requirement for all the keyboard input?  Neat.  Otherwise 
my next question was going to be "Whats a good keylogger for linux so I could 
record all those keystrokes and play them back".  istanbul came to mind, but 
on reading its description in the smart gui, that didn't sound like what I 
wanted to do.

And its done since I'll probably reboot to Con K's latest scheduler ck patch 
in the morning, which will test this if not before for a few hours.  He just 
released another for 2.6.22 a few hours ago.

>(this hint found on a CentOS mailing list)
