And if you already have grub installed on the machine another way to do it
is to add something like this:

title anaconda rawhide install
      root (hd0,0)
      kernel /grub/pxeboot/vmlinuz 
      initrd /grub/pxeboot/initrd.img

to the grub.conf and put the pxeboot kernel and initrd somewhere grub can
find it. Obviously season it to taste.

If you want to get fancy you can easially call a ks.cfg file to automate
things more.
