Copy the DVD image to my NFS fileserver.

Mount the Fedora 7 DVD image at my /mnt/iso directory as follows:

mount  F-7-i386-DVD.iso -t iso9660 -o ro,loop /mnt/iso

Burn the image found at /mnt/iso/images/boot.iso to a CD using K3B.

Boot off of the CD that I just burned.

Select NFS as the installation method when asked, enter the path to the
directory on my NFS fileserver.

Let 'er rip.
