      use rawwritewin to burn the network.img to floppy.
      rawwritewin should be in the dosutils directory of the cdrom one for fedora.

      the network.img will be in the images directory on the same cdrom.

      copy the directory structure of the i386 tree from the ftp mirror then copy the cdrom contents to that tree.
      your network server will have to have a publicly accessable ftp server.
      one that does not require a login.

      ” If you are setting up an installation tree for NFS, FTP, or HTTP
      installations, you need to copy the RELEASE-NOTES files and all
      files from the Fedora directory on discs 1-3. On Linux and Unix
      systems, the following process will properly configure the
      /target/directory on your server (repeat for each disc):
      1. Insert disc
      2. mount /mnt/cdrom
      3. cp -a /mnt/cdrom/Fedora /target/directory
      4. cp /mnt/cdrom/RELEASE-NOTES* /target/directory (Do this only for
      disc 1)
      5. umount /mnt/cdrom
