Still need to download the ISOs though. I just did a this install
without a CD. I wanted a minimal system for a web/smtp server so I wasn't
going to need all the stuff anyhow. I found the method on
fedora.redhat.com and it goes like this:
Download boot.iso from
loopmount that and copy vmlinuz and initrd.img to the HD and point grub to
them. I realised I should have put them on a filesystem that wasn't going
to be wiped after the installer didn't like my HD on the first go....
