i usually download the full iso dvd and the netinst iso CD.
i mount the full iso on a web-server, so that the relevant directory is
visible via the web, and burn the netinst iso CD.
i create a kickstart file. this ks points to the web, with the full iso:
url --url http://install.mydomain.com/f13
except if i install on the web-server itself. then this line looks like:
harddrive --partition=/dev/sda3 --dir=/software/fedora/
then i boot the server to be installed from the netinst CD and give it
the approp ks link:
as kernel parameter.
