    The output is on one of the virtual terminals. If you do a text mode
    install, or hit alt-f1 and search around for the right console, you'll find
    it.

    One possible trick would be to run everything in a subshell (see
    http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/RHNetwork/client-config/4.1.0/ch-rhnreg-ks.html),
    output it to a file and run something like

    echo "/usr/bin/tail -f /tmp/post_install.log" > /tmp/tail.sh
    chmod +x /tmp/tail.sh
    DISPLAY=:0.0 xterm "/tmp/tail.sh"

    but that would require xterm being installed.
