Installing Fedora inside an image file


I would like to know the procedure of installing the Fedora Linux Operating System in an image file with a linux distribution.

On my Linux Box running Fedora 9, I have created a dummy image file of 1 GB size, added dummy devices and mounted it as a device using loopback. The next step for me is to install the linux Operating system on it.

How could I use YUM to install the latest Fedora version in that image file. I would be grateful if you could point me to a website or any writing that you guys may have where this process is explained.

Thanks,
Alec

Wouldn't it be easier to install VMware, QEmu or Virtualbox, mount the image file as target disk and make it boot the CDROM/DVD (ISO)?
