I did some testing this morning and I wasn't able to get Fedora 14 to 
boot from an HTTP repository. I tried the Other install media, RHEL 6 
and CentOS 5 templates, and each time I got errors from eliloader. 
Unfortunately this isn't totally unexpected: eliloader does some really 
OS-specific things with the repositories, and none of our supported 
templates were made to work with Fedora. I've heard that someone here is

working on making eliloader a little more generic, but I'm not really 
familiar with what's going on there.

The best way to do what you want to do is definitely to export your ISOs

on an NFS share and mount them on your pool as an ISO SR. Hope that
