One way would be to plug in the usb key and copy the DVD iso to the HD on
the machine you want to install from onto a partition that won't be
overwritten during the install.  Then loop mount the iso file, and copy out
the vmlinuz and initrd.img files from the isolinux directory into the /boot
area, and add a new section to the grub.conf file to boot the install iso.

Mae sure that you also look at the install from hard drive advice at
