I don't belive there is a fedora core network install. You're probably better off buying a pack of 700meg CD-Rs.

To do a network FC1/2/3/4/5 install (or just about any new or used redhat derivative), you can boot with either the first installation CD or with the RescueCD (very small) and specify askmethod (boot: linux askmethod).

A few questions in, you will be given several source options, including ftp. From that point on, it works like a regular installation.

For i386, you need to burn FC-5-i386-rescuecd.iso. Itís only 75MiB.

For example: ftp://limestone.uoregon.edu/fedora/5...6-rescuecd.iso
