What I understood from Till's first sentence above, is that he would like a
dvd that has a bootloader that can use the enclosed cd iso's as an
installation source. This then would imply that it only works if the system
can actually already boot from the dvd? Therefore it seems to me a bit
pointless.
Fedora would distribute one piece of media.  You would either boot from
it and install, or you would mount it (loop back) and burn the CD sized
isos held within, to boot from those and install from them.

Bonus points if you can figure out how to make the DVD multi-session so that all the files from inside the embedded CD iso's show up as regular files in the DVD :-)

So the bootable chunk is like boot.iso which automatically mounts the rest of the dvd if present or lets you look elsewhere (like the nfs install) if not? Will this also work if you copy the image to a suitably sized bootable USB drive? The missing piece would be how you create the individual CD's if you download from Windows and can't use a DVD.
