Installing Fedora from hard drive

I was wondering if there's any way to install Fedora from the hard drive, because I don't have 3 CD-Rs, and don't want to go buy some new ones. ;< Could I perhaps put them on like a 2GB partition on a hard drive without an OS, then boot from that?

You mean they don't have a way to do a network install?

...shame on them.

This is exactly what I did when I installed. I had a 4GB partition that I was not going to format during install. Put the ISO's on there, and then simply start the install off the first CD. You can choose the source of the other 2 CDs during install. To do this, you will simply type that option where you normally just hit enter to start the X installer.
