I must be missing something here.
I can understand downloading the iso images, making CDs, then reading the
CDs in to disk.  At that point you can do a Disk or FTP install.

You seem to be saying that with NFS you can use the iso images directly.
I know its possible to do some sort of strange mount on these iso images
and see the actual data, but I was going to have to look that up,- you seem
to be saying that there is a askmethod method that can use them directly
with NFS.  Im going to have to load the CD and see just what it says when
I try.
