I used an analogous technique on the NC10 when it first came out (with
F11 if I remember right - and it worked fine. some differences were
that I initially made a copy of partedmagic on a bootable usbkey and
partitioned the drive using that before booting a usbkey set up for
the Fedora install - with one additional difference - on booting the
boot.iso from the usbkey I elected for a hard drive install and
referred to a copy of the DVD iso that I had also added to the usbkey
with the corresponding images directory also on the key.  That way the
install did not need the network.

I am guessing that the method will be the same for the 220 and this
seems to be born out by the previous post.
