I've never had an issue installing from .iso image files, or
NFS exported install tree.  In fact, I typically install via
NFS from my tested install tree of updated RPMs.

Plop the install tree out into a NFS exported directory.
Feel free to mix in updated RPMs and run "genhdlist".
Saves you a number of steps after installation.
