Can I use a Live CD to install FC8 from a remore XP computer with the DVD?
I have a server that is a few years old, with only a CD-ROM available. I want to put FC8 on it, but can't find CD images of the entire distro (which would be insane anyhow at 3GB+). Is it possible to use a LiveCD to tap into a Windows XP machine on the local network sharing the FC8 DVD to do the install?
Alternately, can I copy the files from the DVD onto an NTFS formatted USB external hard drive or SDHC card, boot from a LiveCD and install that way?
As I want to install a lot of packages, I really don't want to be dependent on the online repositories.
