D5 install profiles can have one screen to display after the database
configuration, Drupal 6 profiles can have their own "state machine"
built into the installer after the "Configure site" screen and the
"Finished" screen (also the Configure screen is form_alter-able). So
any kind of install wizard is possible, without having a module. We
are trying to fix bugs to make this kind of feature play nice with
localization even here: http://drupal.org/node/190283
