Indeed so nearly! - although I do still have an old machine with 256MB RAM and
the DVD install won't work. nor an HD install off the same iso file in it - not
for F7 or F6. However it did still install F7 from the KDE livecd and sometime
in the coming few weeks I will try and install f8 that way on that machine -
however my priority will be to install on the newer machines - starting with a
laptop where it won't matter if I have problems and am not up and running within
an hour or two.  Once any issues are resolved I will work around the other
machines - and eventually back to  the old 256MB machine!
