Installing DVD iso

I never burn the DVD image.

Rather, I only burn the rescue image.

Copy the DVD image to a partition that you won't need for installing, 
boot off the recue CD, tell the installer you want to install from a 
hard drive, and point the installer to the proper partition/folder.

You could even do this same type of install using an old clunker hard 
drive.  An old 4 gigger is perfect for the occasion.
