Re: Install F9 on a loopback file a la Wubi

This would be [the first step of] one way to install for a machine with
not enough RAM to run the installer itself.

Another way for very small machines is to boot from an old Rescue CD,
partition the disk and create filesystems, and export the filesystems
using nfs.  Then from a larger machine on the same network, run rpm with
--root pointing at the exported root filesystem, and probably
"--aid opensshd" to get enough to make the machine usable once booted.
