Back when you had to stuff in 5 CDs (pre-DVD days for me) too often a CD failed in the middle of the install, so I got in the habbit of using a local repo for at least the OS. With Fedora, I added a local update repo as well to eliminate a 2-pass install. I HAVE used kickstart files where I would do an install, mess around, then blow it away and install again.
