Install Fedora from iso

I want to install Fedora on my compuer. Currently Red Hat 9 is installed on my computer. But I have only iso images on the hardrive.

yarrow-i386-disc1.iso yarrow-i386-disc2.iso yarrow-i386-disc3.iso

Is it possible to install Fedora from ISO? If so how ?

Make a directory and put the images into that directory....
mkdir /mnt/fedora

You need to mount the first image so you can make the boot floppy...
mount -o loop -t iso9660 yarrow-i386-disc1.iso /mnt/fedora

Make the boot floppy......
dd if=/mnt/fedora/images/bootdisk.img of=/dev/fd0 bs=1440k

Unmount the image....
umount /mnt/fedora

Reboot with the newly made boot disk and select the hard drive install from the hard drive using /mnt/fedora and the location of the iso images.

You can also check out the documentation at Redhat

Simply burn the 3 ISOs onto 3 CDs, boot from the First CD & follow the rather simple anaconda installer process

I like the ISO install better. It is much much faster. I simply put the ISO's on a partition that I was not going to format, IE media drive etc... I then followed the commands from Redhat on doing the ISO install, and it works beautifully exactly the same as CD's just a hell of a lot faster.
