No you can not.

Live cd works in that way that all the components are uncompressed and 
loaded into memory as needed from the Live CD and everything is running 
from there.

I don't particular see the usefulness in that feature care to explain 
what kind of behaviour you are looking for a bit more?

Hypothetically you could do some *partition magic* given that you had 
sufficient free storage space to over install Fedora over currently 
running system but you would still need to *reboot* to the new install 
which kinda renders it pointless that is if that was what you where 
looking for.
