That's not the kind of hack I have in mind, I rather plan to mount the CD image on a loop device, find out the install scripts and hack them to run the install from the mounted image into a free partition.

I could, but I had nasty surprises doing that with a Knoppix DVD.
It took quite a bit of work to fix the misconfigured devices and modules from the installation machine when the disk was moved to the running machine.
