IIRC I've managed to use a first_cd, dvd, last_cd option.  This was a
much older (~500mhz dual pIII) system, and for whatever reason I
couldn't install straight from DVD.  Essentially I didn't want to
babysit the drive while it re-installed for the third time, so I tried
a shortcut.

I think I began the install with disc1, dropped in the DVD when
prompted for disc2, and put in discX when prompted (it happened to be
the final disc).  We didn't actually end up using the system for much
of anything other than a testbed, so I didn't keep any further

Hope this helps (or at least does no harm)
