If you have some disk partition which you don't install to, you can do
hard disk installation. Simply, put the ISO images into some directory
on that partition,

cp -a /mnt/cdrom/isolinux/vmlinuz /boot/FC2-install
cp -a /mnt/cdrom/isolinux/initrd.img /boot/FC2-install.img
umount /mnt/cdrom

and add entry like:

title Fedora Core 2 Installation
         root (hd0,0)
         kernel /boot/FC2-install
         initrd /boot/FC2-install.img

to your /etc/grub.conf, then reboot into "Fedora Core 2 Installation".
During the install choose Hard Disk installation and point the installer
at the partition with ISOs.
