You could try installing from hard disk if you have enough space -
copy the ISO images to the hard disk,
disassemble the first with "mount -o loop FC*disc1.iso /mnt"
then "cp -a /mnt/isolinux /boot"
add a stanza to /etc/grub.conf like
title FC-5 boot
        root (hd0,1)
        kernel /isolinux/vmlinuz
        initrd /isolinux/initrd.img
and re-boot.
