Works when you have the networking bandwidth, i.e. high download quota
(10s of GB per month) and speed megabits vs. Hz.

I haven't tried this recently. If I recall, each boot/rescue CD is
specific to a given release. So if I boot an older release rescue CD
(e.g. FC3), type "askmethod", select NFS, and point the URL to a  F7
repository the install would fail. Does that problem still exist?
Would be nice if there was a reusable network installer CD. It would
keep old CDs from filling the landfills.
