Yes, there should be a small boot image along with the isos that you can 
boot from usb or pxe, then you pick the nfs install method and put in 
the path to the directory where you downloaded the CD iso images.  There 
are other network install options, but nfs is quick and easy if you've 
already downloaded the iso images.
