Yes, you can. Burn the boot.iso and reboot from there. Then select a manual
installation, and choose hard disk as the media. Be careful about which
filesystem (FAT32 or NTFS) because i seem to recall that NTFS is not
available. Then set the correct installation source.
It is possible to install from hard disk even from USB or FireWire devices,
through the latter is an hassle (need to scan the scsi bus).
