I have downloaded the 7.92 test 3 DVD iso image. I would like to put this on my local web server, and do a network install from that onto my laptop, via http. I suppose this would be a lot faster than a network installation across the internet?

substantially  ;)

Are there any Linux utilites that would allow me to unpack the iso's contents into my web server directory please?

There is a script for this, which has been working for me to set up ISO images for LTSP, and RHL test installs -- looking at it I first published an ancestor of the current scriipt externally five years ago. Looks like I started using it before RHL 6 days. See item 6.

Other approaches to hang ISO images for wire installs abound as well. From doco from its upstream:
