I'll try to write up more clearly what I would like to see.
Basically, it would start:
There are 8(?) ways of installing Fedora-n.
1. Burn DVD
2. Burn CDs
3. USB stick
4. Hard disk install
5. PXEboot
6. preupgrade
7. Net install CD
8. Yum upgrade.
...
Each of these is described more fully below ...

At a quick glance, this seems to cover methods 1 and 2 above.
It is clear and factual, if a bit wordy;
I mean "Follow the instructions that appear on the screen"
covers almost everything after the DVD or CDs are burned,
though there is nothing wrong in explaining more fully
what choices are offered at each stage.
