Question disc-less installation


Is it possible to install FC6 via a DVD image without burning it to disc. I have a Linux box (Scientific Linux 4) without a DVD reader, and I've downloaded the DVD FC6 image. Can I mount the image somehow during boot-up in order to install from the image file?

Hmm... well... here's how to mount the install image:
Code:
mount -o loop -t iso9660 [image.iso] [/mnt/point]
Then, you can cd to [/mnt/point] and view the contents of the disc.

No idea what to do next.
