All boot media except the distribution DVD present a menu that
allows you to choose the installation source, such as the network
or a hard disk. If you are booting the distribution DVD and do
not want to install from the DVD, hit Tab at the
boot menu. Add a space and the option
to the end of the line that appears below the menu.
You can install Fedora from the ISO images stored on hard disk, or from a network using NFS, FTP, or HTTP methods. Experienced users frequently use one of these methods because it is often faster to read data from a hard disk or network server than from a CD or DVD.
The following table summarizes the different boot methods and recommended installation methods to use with each:
|Boot Method||Installation Method|
|DVD||DVD, network, or hard disk|
|Minimal boot CD or USB, rescue CD||Network or hard disk|
|Live CD or USB||Install to Hard Disk application|
Chapter 6, Installation Methods contains detailed information about installing from alternate locations.
