Yes, I have installed Fedora via NFS, both kickstart and interactive. 
 The procedure is no different, but due to a number of things which were 
different in the Fedora kickstart files, I found I had to go through an 
interactive install first, to get a base kickstart file to work from. 
 Subsequent minor modifications (adding/omitting packages) caused no 
problems, and I was able to do kickstart-driven installs via NFS.
