While there is very little difference between nfs and http installs,
I found that I prefered nfs because I could eject the CD and take it
away after the install got going; http installs seemed to hang on to
the CD until the first boot.

Of course now that I'm getting everything going with PXE (through
Cobbler), I suspect the difference is again pretty much insignificant.
