If you are looking to do a network install there are a number of kernel
params you can pass.  When you insert the bootable CD try running this:

linux method=http://location/to/your/repo ip=yourip netmask=yournetmask
gateway=yourgateway dns=yourdns

Method also supports nfs, ftp, a local hard drive, and cdrom.   For more
