This wont work as you need to reboot to make sure the hw is in "good
state" , wich will make the "uninstall part" useless.

you dont need cable access for the first part (1-4) but need
cable access (or beta1 install dvd) for second part (5-8)
after configuration step you obviously need to disconnect the
cable to verify that it works with wireless.
And you dont need to do a new install to test this,
a current installed/updated cauldron system should be enough.
