Should installer schedule running ipa-client-install and enroll the 
machine? Many options can be re-used from the installer itself 
(hostname is known at this point, as well as how network was 
configured), so there is handful of things to discover.

Though I would get discovery part of the ipa-client-install reused 
here -- like finding out kerberos setup via DNS and if that fails, 
show UI to enter all additional details, then schedule 
actual enrollment.
