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

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.
