Fedora: Specify Repo when Booting Installer

To specify an installation source for Fedora, CentOS, Red Hat or Scientific Linux, use the linux repo= option at the boot prompt:

For example:

linux repo=cdrom:device

linux repo=ftp://username:password@URL

linux repo=http://URL

linux repo=hd:device

linux repo=nfs:options:server:/path

linux repo=nfsiso:options:server:/path

In these examples, cdrom refers to a CD or DVD drive, ftp refers to a location accessible by FTP, http refers to a URL accessible by HTTP, hd refers to an ISO image file accessible on a hard drive partition, nfs refers to an expanded tree of installation files accessible by NFS, and nfsiso refers to an ISO image file accessible by NFS.
