If he already has a Linux install, he can boot the installer through
GRUB.  I have done this a couple of times when I didn't want to bother
with burning a CD or setting up network booting.  It would work well
for booting a machine without a CD.

Basically, it involves copying vmlinuz and initrd.imb from
images/pxeboot in the Fedora repository to /boot and adding a entry to
/etc/grub.conf to boot them.

title Fedora Install
	root (hd0,0)
	kernel /vmlinuz
	initrd /initrd.img
