The live CDs are also installable. Just stick it in, boot to it. If it comes 
up OK you will find a "install to harddrive" icon on the desktop. Just run 

It runs anaconda so you should have the full range of upgrade/install options 
as a normal install (not 100% sure on this though, when I did it I did a 
fresh install and didn't look to see if there was an upgrade option ?)

As there is only one CD there is of course a reduced set of packages 
available - But assuming your system has network they are all but a yum 
install away, so no big deal.

If you are trying to install to a box with no network or DVD drive, well you 
might have problems and have to try some of the clever work arounds suggested 
on this list...
