4.2. Installing from a Different Source
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
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:
||DVD, network, or hard disk
|Minimal boot CD or USB, rescue CD
||Network or hard disk
|Live CD or USB
