Oops, I didn't read the UML website fully so I didn't notice this
until now:

 "Installation of RedHat Linux into User Mode Linux Kernel HOWTO"

Excellent! This little hack allows you to even run the installer (at
least of RH8 and RH9) inside UML, so that you can install it to a
virtual hard drive.

Of course, the process could be made more seamless, and it could
probably be hacked further to make it install in graphical mode
- but it's a good start.
