I hear great things about SuSE's YaST and I generally think that using
it or Anaconda in the form of a native, ported, perhaps even enhanced
application is a great idea in general.

In summary, both Anaconda and YaST seem to have proven themselves in the
industry and giving people something they're already farmiliar with
from a UI stand-point is usually a win.
