Err, yes. Except the first half of your request is already done. You *can*
install from a 5MB cd over the network. (Altough it's nicer to have an ~80mb
one which has the full GUI installer, because it's annoying to pull that
over the net every time.)

But what it doesn't do is look for updates and use newer packages if
available, like yum does.
