A bit OT: trying to install fc7 from hard drive - was [PlanetCCRMA] Fedora 7: Planet CCRMA for i386!

If I understand correctly, the iso image must be uncompressed, or mounted.

What I did for my last "network" install was to download the iso image to another computer running linux, and then mounted the image onto a directory I came up with (/mnt/fc6iso) - the mount command was "mount -t=iso9660 -o loop /{home/name}/{isoimagename}.iso /mnt/fc6iso".

Then, using NFS, I shared the directory on the network.

Finally, I burned a CD with the boot.iso image, and did a network install, using {ip_address}/mnt/fc6iso

Otherwise, I believe that you would need to dd the image to a directory location, then find that directory location for the install (locally).
