What you probably don't realize is that they have changed
the way installs work (for your convenience :-).

This worked for me (using the cryptically terse instructions
from https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/Options)

I already had fedora 8, and I had a downloaded DVD iso image
for fedora 10, so sitting in the directory with the ISO file
(which for me was /backup/iso-images/Fedora-10-x86_64-DVD/)
I did this:

mount -o loop Fedora-10-x86_64-DVD.iso /mnt
mkdir /boot/x86_64
cp /mnt/isolinux/initrd.img /boot/x86_64
cp /mnt/isolinux/vmlinuz /boot/x86_64
mkdir images
cp /mnt/images/install.img images

The convenient change is the need to have the install.img file
in the images subdir right next to the iso image file (and
I seem to recall someone saying there needs to be no other
iso image files in that directory).

Then I made a /boot/grub/grub.conf entry that looked like:

title Install Fedora 10 x86_64
	root (hd0,1)
	kernel /boot/x86_64/vmlinuz noselinux asknetwork repo=hd:/dev/sdc5:/iso-images/Fedora-10-x86_64-DVD
	initrd /boot/x86_64/initrd.img

(where /dev/sdc5 is the partition corresponding to what I have
mounted at /backup).

Then I booted the system and picked the Install Fedora 10 x86_64
option, and Shazam! I'm running anaconda and installing from the iso
image without ever involving any CD or DVD media at all.
