Upgrading via Internet Fedora Core 1 to Fedora Core 2

I am currently running Fedora Core 1 on my main desktop. After experiencing the magic of Fedora Core 2 on my laptop, I'm ready to throw it on my desktop. However, I downloaded the DVD edition (to install on my laptop) and my desktop doesn't have a DVD-ROM.

Is there a way that I can basically do an installation from the 'net? Either over FTP or even setting up a samba share from another box sounds best.

Alrighty, that helped majorly. I've got everything working for the most part...just have to get my mouse working again. I guess that I just need to peer into XFree86Config and copy the stuff there in XorgConf (or whatever the file is).
