You could also just do the install portion and then use the old steps to
"configure" IDM, i.e. configure eDirectory (if not already done on this
box) using ndsmanage, load Designer, connect to eDirectory, and create a
new driverset.

I think there was more to it, but I only base that on the post that the
Product Manager (PM) in these forums at the time, specifically calling out
the need for an updated installer for new installs on OES 2018, which came
out after IDM 4.7: https://forums.novell.com/showthread.php?t=508787

For what it's worth, I've done a few new installs with IDM, even using the
configure portion to build a new tree from scratch, including with a
pre-release build (the first ISO, not the current one re-released for OES
2018 support), and never had any issues. To be fair, I do not recall ever
using the 'configure' option to join an existing tree on a new server.

Good luck.
