Yes, it's very difficult to do it across a WAN - all the SMF services
keep timing out due to slow CD access, and you will spend an hour or
two repeatedly clearing them until you get enough of the system up to
load an image into the local drives.
I've had to do this a few times when it was the only way to install a
remote system. It needs a boot-time option to disable all SMF timeouts,
or that needs to be the default for the installation system's miniroot.
