Ok, another stupid question.

1 - If I understood you correctly, you mounted the first ISO, used the
files in it to do a minimal install via NFS but to the files instead of
the ISO?

2 - Depending on answer to first question, what if I wanted a more than
minimal install, don't I have to do all 4 iso's like that so they
include all the files and are in the same dir?  Or do I have to do it
differently to get them all in the same dir and have proper structure
lay out?
