How about this:
1. Download boot.iso from Fedora 7 mirrors (e.g. from
2. Burn that to a CD (makes a bootable CD).
3. Download the Fedora 7 DVD iso (best is done from torrents) and put it
on a partition in your disk which will not be overwritten during
4. Boot from the boot disk and start installation by telling the
installer to install from the ISO image that is on your hard disk.
I am going to try it out in a day or two when I get some time
(downloading the DVD iso at present).
This way you never need to actually burn the data to any media, except
to make a bootable CD, which can be avoided by making a bootable USB
stick using diskboot.img instead
