If I am correct in understanding your requirement, there is a method for installing "unassisted" it is called kickstart and has been a feature of RedHat Linux/RHEL/Fedora for years.
I Use it all the time. Do a sample install with the GUI, tick the relevant box to generate your kickstart file. At the end, save to floppy/cd/medium of choice and you can use it over and over again.
One of my top criteria for building a production system is all about repeatability. By using a ks file then you are sure that you can build the same underlying core system time and time again quickly and easily.
I use Fedora for servers. Yes they are not in a production environment but the "bleeding edge" nature of the distro is just what I want so that I can get a taste of what is to come in RHEL etc and can make my code ready for future versions of RHEL.
I also like the improved HW coverage OOTB in Fedora.
