Using a simple PXE boot requires the DVD (not net-install) if you want
to point to a local repo to save bandwidth.

One day I hope just mounting it would be enough to reconfigure the PXE
subsystem, but unfortunately, the pxelinux.cfg stuff seems very path
dependant and all distros do things just different enough each release
that it remains a manual process to update my PXE server for a new
release of fedora/centos/ubuntu.
