Why not use one machine as the NFS install directory for your LAN?
Create a directory where the downloaded ISO's will reside.
Example: /opt/iso
Add the directory listing in the /etc/exports  file.
Example:  /opt/iso  (ro,sync)  someone.mylocaldomain(rw,sync)
And turn on nfs
Then all your other machines install from one download.
