I've no idea what a VPS is, but if it can boot from a USB pendrive
(thumbdrive, memory stick, whatever) then the procedure is fairly
simple. Basically you install a copy of the Fedora Live CD on your
pendrive, boot from it, check that your hardware works and when
satisfied click the icon that says "Install".
