If you set up your existing F9 host as a web server, you can install the DVD contents on the web server, and either make a bootable CD from one of the images on the DVD or download a F9 CD#1 and perform a network installation from the F9 web server. I have done this exact thing for the very same reason as you (and because I wanted to see if it would work, and it did).

No, but there is an Anaconda network setup option where an installation accesses an ISO file on another machine, which implies that if a DVD was mounted in a network-accessible directory, you could do it that way.

Another way is to copy all the contents of the DVD into Fedora machine and make it available via nfs.
And boot from fedora cd and choose the method of installation.

PS: Fedora 9 is old and has already lost support. Fedora 10 will also lose the support in sometime as f12 will come out.
