Get serious about remote "push" installs.  Boot a 20MB package
of kernel plus disk partitioner (text, like Debian) plus enough
to mount and export the results over NFS.  Then go to a different
machine [with large resources] that already runs Fedora N-1, mount
the target volumes over NFS, and "push" an install onto those
partitions.

In theory, such a "push" install can be done by using rpm only:
change the --root and --db appropriately, and install the kernel
and --aid opensshd.  This will be enough to ssh to the result,
then complete the install natively.
