I've had DVD images for the last several versions of Fedora downloaded and mounted so as to serve as a local http install repository. I'm trying to do the same with Fedora 11.

If my memory serves me correctly, somewhere in the Fedora DVD image is a minimal booting CD image which I can burn to CD and get a boot disc, capable of booting a machine and launching an install that will run off of my mounted DVD repository.

I attempted to burn the file images/install.img but this yielded an unmountable disc, so I guess I picked wrong. Where is the boot image located within the DVD, if there is one?

I wasn't aware it was included on the DVD previously, but the netinstall image is available from, and the standard mirrors.

Yes, that's what I'm using unless someone lets me know there's another hiding on the DVD. It's what I used before I discovered the image on the DVD, actually. The boot.iso on the DVD is actually even more minimal than the netinst image. But it worked! – skiphoppy Sep 9 '09 at 17:59

Okay, looks like Fedora 8, 9, and 10 have an images/boot.iso file, but 11 does not. I guess I was the only one using it. :(
