It is not a new installation method, it is similar to adding a new HBA
driver / module. I hope you don't have to test installation via all the
existing SCSI HBA drivers in the initrd, you would go insane. :)

I personally prefer a network install over CD.

But if all you have is iSCSI (no nfs/ftp/http server) how are you going to
install? That is not an unreasonable setup, especially if you have an
iSCSI attached CDROM.
