FC3, harddisc install and reiserfs.



How I may install fc3 if my iso images placed on reiserfs partition?

I was burned 2 disc -> cd5 (rescue) and cd1 (install).
I have 4 linux partitions.
/dev/hdb5 (boot, reiserfs) -> format
/dev/hdb6 (/, reiserfs) -> format
/dev/hdb7 (/temp, reiserfs) -> do not format (isos placed on /fedora/iso/{FC3-...cd1.iso and etc})
/dev/hdb8 (swap) -> format.

First try.
1. Boot from cd5, boot: linux vga=792... bla bla bla askmethod reiserfs selinux=0
2. In "installation type" menu I was select "install from harddisk".
3. Select /dev/hdb7, and write in the path "/fedora/iso/" (with/without first and last slashes)
4. Get error: "cannot find isos".
5. In console (alt+f2,f3) i saw messages: cannot mount partition, not ext2, not vfat.

Second try.
1. Boot from cd1, boot: linux vga=792... bla bla bla askmethod reiserfs selinux=0
2. In "installation type" menu I was select "install from harddisk".
3. Select /dev/hdb7, and write in the path "/fedora/iso/" (with/without first and last slashes)
4. Get error: "cannot find isos".
5. In console (alt+f2,f3) i saw messages: cannot mount partition, not ext2, not vfat.

Third try.
1. Boot from cd1, boot: linux vga=792... bla bla bla reiserfs selinux=0
2. Do all steps, make partitions, select packages.
3. When installation wants cd2 (disk was ejected), goto console and write:
cd mnt
mkdir hdb7
mount -t reiserfs /dev/hdb7 /mnt/hdb7
cd hdb7
cd fedora
cd iso
mount -o loop FC3-i386...cd2.iso /mnt/source
get error about unknown loop devices.

How install fc3 from reiserfs partitions, without burning all 4 disks?
In previsious installations (fc2, fc3), I was may install from isos that placed on reiserfs discs.
 
Thanx.
