Yes, you can download a "rootfs" tarball from one of the mirrors[1], and extract
it to a freshly-formatted partition. That should get you quickly up and running.

The installer is almost (but not quite) ready, so the current installation CDs
still require manual installation process[2]. This would get you effectively the
same thing as a rootfs tarball.

There are also "rootfs-mini" tarballs that contain only the minimal set of packages
necessary to run the package manager. I wouldn't recommend using them unless you
know exactly what you want beforehand.
