No. You'd have to lay out the partitions ahead of time. With a livecd
you'd be able to do that though.

With live DVDs and CDs you get whatever is installed on the live image.
You eseentially copy the file systems to disk. (In fact the root file
system type of the install has to match that of the image.)
With the install DVD you select which packages to install. So they is

the normal mechanism is to use a kickstart file.
