Help: F10 Upgrade from Network DVD drive?

I have downloaded the Fedora F10 Upgrade ISO file. I can burn it to a DVD, but the DVD drive is on another computer. Can I:
1) Start the upgrade from the DVD over my home network?
2) Skip burning the DVD and start the upgrade directly from the file on the hard drive on the networked computer?

I know that the ISO file is a collection of files and folders that can be "unzipped" as it were. I thought the upgrade might be started from one of those files.

I am running Fedora Ver 8 on the computer to be upgraded.

The ISO file is a DVD or CD-ROM image. You need to boot the computer into the boot process somehow.

Usually this is done by booting to the install disc. Since you can't do that, look in the dvd (or dvd iso image) for instructions. It may have a small image that can be written to a usb drive and you can boot the computer to that.

After the boot process starts, the installation can continue from the original image if you offer the directory up as a share.

There are usually several ways of getting the boot process started. Look for a README in the /BOOT directory on the DVD you downloaded.
