Why use boot.img

Can anyone suggest a strong argument for using boot.img on a cd over launching an install from the first FC3 disk?

If you can use the first FC3 disk as a boot disk, go ahead and use it. If you have an older system that can't boot from CD then use the boot.img.

Some images will allow other types of install, such as network installation or from an external usb drive.
