Installing Fedora 12 using Net Install CD

This document contains the procedure of using Net Install CD to perform installation on Fedora 12. Using Net Install, you download the latest files directly from the Internet from Fedora repository.

The main advantage is, you got the latest files directly from the Fedora repository. You don’t have to perform system update after the installation.

The main disadvantage is, the installation time is very long. A text based installation of 200 packages lasted 20 minutes. A normal installation with basic GNOME desktop environment (about 1000 packages) will need 2 hours of installation time. This, of course, is subjected the web traffic and your download speed.
