Do you have another Linux machine with a webserver? What I have taken to doing is downloading the ISO files, but instead of burning them all, I burn the first one and transfer all the ISOs to a server here with apache.
Then I do something like this on the server, as root
cd /var/www/html mkdir iso mount -o loop FC3-i386-SRPMS-disc1.iso iso
Boot off your first CD but when it asks, tell it to install over http from your webserver like http://server/iso
Then the install will take everything else from the server over http. When it asks for the second CD, on the server do this
umount iso mount -o loop FC3-i386-SRPMS-disc2.iso iso
and a similar deal for the third CD. The installer doesn't go back to earlier CDs so it's simple enough. It's also much much faster than install from CDs! At the end
on the server and you're done.
