You can use kickstart to begin the installation process and 
configure your partitions after X is launched.

Sure, it may be more comfortable if you have several 
computers to install, but I'm not sure your keyboard 
will work in console mode after X is started.

I sent you a loader which shouldn't (not tested) ask
for the mediacheck step (same behavior as when you
use a kickstart) as it is what you are looking for.
But I don't think this is the correct way to handle 
this problem.
Moreover I will be easier to use the kickstart to do it
(no need to run mk-images or buildinstall) since it does
the same thing.

follow the diff for those interested:
