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.
