I'm pretty sure I did this before, when I had a Fedora DVD, but no DVD 
drive in the target system. I copied the iso to the target Linux box, 
then run the installer in a custom way, you can mount the iso and run 
the installer off it.

I can't seem to find the instructions I used, but I'm sure if you check 
the Fedora/Redhat site on anything to do with install or anaconda, 
you'll find it too.

To answer your question briefly, yes it is possible but I do not 
remember exactly how I did it.
