Not that I know of.  You could make your own custom boot iso.

If you can install FC3 at all you should be able to get the errata
kernel installed without needing the network.  Various ways: put
the errata kernel rpm on the hard disk and do an update install,
put it in a partition that doesn't get overwritten if you're doing
a fresh install, install it from removable media.
