Smile Fedora w/2 partitions but no CD... Help

Fedora but no CD... Help
Right now I'm running Ubuntu and love the concept but don't have the necessary drivers for my Notebook. I love the thing but Windows crashed just 1 month after the software warranty ran out.
I have the Fedora 15 ISOs but no CD burner and no access to one. I've tried unpacking the ISO to a directory on one partition and formatted the other. All ready now with no place to go. I've started editing some of the init files and I sort of know what I'm doing but I have no idea if I even can install from that to the other partition. It seems like it should work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

You could put the iso onto a USB stick with dd.

Problem resolved... Sort of...

Long story. I found an old (8.?) Ubuntu install disk in a book. No ISO, direct install. But had no drivers for my hardware (gateway notebook) so to get online I walked 10 miles and panhandled (homeless, unemployed BTW) $32 for a WiFi dongle with drivers. Then updated to full 10.04 Ubuntu online. Works great. IMHO better than Windows 7.
