Technically, yes it is opensourced. But one of the things that does kinda
distinguish one distro from another is the installer[1].
So yes, it is opensource. So, counter-question. Why should this non
distro owned program require a specific distro's program? :) But this all
of course a moot point.

[1] The sum difference between YellowDogLinux 1.0, LinuxPPC, Inc 1999 and
LinuxPPC Reference Release was that two changed/help port the installer the
3rd did, which was RedHat's newt-based installer. Some confusion ensused.
