Using the NFS method you can just point anaconda at the directory on
the NFS server containing the iso (or iso's if you use the cd images)
and anaconda will take care of reading the files from the iso.  No
loopback mounting needed on your part.  It's quite handy.

Very handy. Yet people say Linux is soo hard to install. :(
