When I've done network installs in the past, it was possible to do it
either way (dependent on what sort of network install you were doing).
But I found it much faster to install from ordinary files on a drive,
there seemed to be an enormous memory and processing overhead on dealing
with a large ISO.  Sometimes it'd be a complete show-stopper.
