I doubt that there is an easy way doing such an install by uml means
only... If youre not a purist, however: grab the installation iso and
use qemu (or vmware or ...) to install your favourite distribution
into an image file. Mount that file afterwards, add the uml kernel
modules and remove all the stuff you wouldn‘t need in a virtualized
environment (console setup, zillions of TTYs etc. pp.)
You could of course speed things up, do a native install and create an
image file from that...
Just my two cents,
