http://boot.fedoraproject.org/ is a new method of installing Fedora over the internet and provides an easy way to upgrade and install Fedora on network capable hosts via a small download.

http://boot.fedoraproject.org/ is a boot method similar to pxeboot. It uses very small images (iso, floppy, disk) to bootstrap a machine that then contacts a remote server for boot information. You will get a screen similar to the GRUB boot loader and the installation will be identical to a normal installation except that the kernel and initrd has to be downloaded over the internet and hence might be a bit slower.

http://boot.fedoraproject.org/ is a new method of installing Fedora over the internet and provides an easy way to upgrade and install Fedora on network capable hosts via a small download. Once burned to USB or CD/DVD, boot.fedoraproject.org can be used to install future versions of Fedora when they are available without having to burn new media. It is based on http://boot.kernel.org/

http://boot.fedoraproject.org/ is a boot method similar to pxeboot. It uses very small images (iso, floppy, disk) to bootstrap a machine that then contacts a remote server for boot information. You will get a screen similar to the GRUB boot loader and the installation will be identical to a normal installation except that the kernel and initrd has to be downloaded over the internet and hence might be a bit slower.
