Right, and you can install over NFS: put the iso image in a directory on
a different Linux machine, export that directory over NFS, and then use
the rescue CD to start the installation with. Specify "NFS image" as the
installation type when you come to that screen.
You can do it over ftp too. I haven't done an ftp install in a while
You can also do it over VNC. I've only done that once and with an early
version of Fedora Core, probably 2 or 3. VNC-based installs seems
unnecssarily complicated to me.
Why bother burning DVD media, if you can do it over the network or on a
hard drive they way Jeff suggests?

Rather, I only burn the rescue image.
Copy the DVD image to a partition that you won't need for installing,
boot off the recue CD, tell the installer you want to install from a
hard drive, and point the installer to the proper partition/folder.
You could even do this same type of install using an old clunker hard
drive. An old 4 gigger is perfect for the occasion.

Later on I always use Fedora 6 (CD version) which doesn't accomodate the new
version of hardware.
