Seems to me Rahul's suggest was a valid one. The Fedora Minimal Boot
Media is basically like Debian's Net-Install. It allows you to boot a
small image and then the rest of the install is done over the network.
Another suggestion might be for you to re-spin your own minimal server
based version of Fedora.
I seriously doubt there is enough demand in the community to warrant the
creation of a specific server install version of Fedora especially since
there are other options to achieve the same goal.
