Is it possible to install FC5 via FTP, with the FC5 iso images mounted 
using loop-back on the ftp server?  I've used this method with FC1-4, 
and RHEL3-4, but for FC5, it doesn't work.  I haven't tried yet, but I 
could loop-back mount the FC5 iso's and copy the iso's to a directory on 
the ftp server, but the loop-back method is a nice method for saving 
disk space.
