Linux network install disks are boot disks that install a distro over a network connection, from a remote mirror. Many of these disks are called 'boot.iso', and can be found in the mirror repositories for a given distro, usually in a folder called 'images'. Http works before the the distribution is installed because the driver is on the boot cd. I don't know why you would need a document to install.

Thank you so much for your reply. If I understand correctly, when it boots it automatically configure the network driver and if there is a ISP connection, it connects automatically? Please let me know. Thanks in advance. I'm new to this.

The following is for Fedora 7 only, but it gives you an idea how to do a installation via http:
Please read 6.3 and 6.6 (6.5 also if you would also consider ftp)
