It's a while since I've played with a live disc, and I haven't tried the
Fedora 11 live disc, but I seem to recall that when you booted the
Fedora live discs, there was an option menu about booting or installing.
Some other distros left you with a desktop icon to start up an
installation process.

Yes, but...  

If you're making it public, and intend to have it around for the long
term, you'll find having to regularly update the OS (to stay on top of
security issues) to be a pain.  For that sort of thing, a system with a
longer lifespan (e.g. CentOS) can be better.

Though for *short* *term* provision of services, internal testing, etc.,
I find it good.
