i think that the fedora core directory is the share name of the remote directory containing the contents of all of the fedora cds.
site name can just be the ip of the machine it is stored on

yeah i got that but do you not need to have access to an ftp site containing the install files, i.e. what is on the distro cds, in a specific folder on the ftp site, then tell the installer to go to that ftp site and folder, thus the ftp site name can be either the ip address or the name of the machine running the ftp server, and the folder would be the folder in the ftp site containing the files.
so ...
fedora.cat.pdx.edu, for ftp site
/linux/core/5/x86_64/os, for 64bit
/linux/core/5/i386/os, for 32bit
follow:

for more info
