I was wrong. There is an F3 option, and several others. Press F3, and
you can change the type of installation from DVD to FTP or NFS. Then
it sets up the hardware. I did not get the NFS installation to work.

I did set up a loopback device for an FTP installation, and that is
running now. It is installing from my local FTP server, using the
loopback device to mount the DVD ISO image.
