I found the answer to my question:
Yes, you can do this from an Image Catalog.
In your Image Catalog you will need to load DVDs I_BASE_01, B2924_01
and B2924_02. If you do not load those 3 DVDs when you start the
install your Verify Image Catalog will fail.

From an existing system running either something earlier than 7.1, or
and you want to scratch it and start over?
Well, if you are at 7.1 and want to scratch it and start over you might be ok if all you want is LIC. (No OS and LPPs.) Otherwise it's going to have a dickens of a time finding volume 2 after the disks have been initialized.
Upgrading from 5.4 or 6.1 to 7.1 using image catalogs is done all the time. Unless you are REALLY short of disk space it's the best way to fly.

Is it possible to do a Slip install of the LIC from an image catalog at
7.1? What steps do I need to follow?
