I believe that if you add "text" to the kernel boot parameters, you'll
get a text based version of the Anaconda installer. Or at least that
used to be the case.

I've included that parameter with my kickstart installs, and I get a
text installer (which might be because they're automated installs), but
I haven't tried supplying the option manually with this release yet.
I've also built VMs this way, for a variety of platforms, with only 2gb
of RAM, although I used the smaller boot CD, and a network repo to do it.
