That should work. No, I didn't do anything like that. I just can't remember whether I used HTTP or NFS for the last network install. My install booted from the rescue disc to do a network install with the files from a DVD ISO as files on my hard disc, exactly as copied from it. The copying process would have been from a loop mount, but the actual install wasn't. But anyway, I think that's probably going off on a tangent from the original poster's query about networking installing. I do recall having quite some difficulty the first time I tried to install. I'd put the install files onto another hard drive, and tried to do an install from a local hard drive, and despite it being mounted and readable, the install routine couldn't make use of it. I installed another box by removing the DVD drive from yet another computer. And the last FC7 install was using the rescue CD as the boot drive, and external drive in a USB box with the DVD ISO on it. -- (This computer runs FC7, my others run FC4, FC5 & FC6, in case that's important to the thread.)
