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/

The '''rsyslog''' logging service is no longer being installed by default. All logging is now being handled by the systemd journal. Users requiring the rsyslog service should install it manually.
  
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.
