AFIK that's the only way to do a Graphical Install. Maybe some one else can
lend you trick to use with the PXE Boot Version. 

You can put your Media in NFS or HTTP and make Anaconda Pull from there. Can
also do what's  called a Push. IE push the files to the client from another
machine. That would be something like Using a Virtual Drive.

Subject: Re: [CentOS] Graphical net install

I am using Centos 5.2...

The kickstart stuff was just a quick test.. (no go)

I have got the graphical install running by booting from cdrom (also the VNC
variant), but i would like to run these completely from the network (nfs or
http or whatever..)

This does not seem to work and i haven't been able to find anything on the
net about it... (all references to graphical "net" install are using the
netinstall cdrom)...
