Default install.img missing from Fedora-15-i386-DVD.iso

Hi there. *I've been doing hard disk updates for quite a while and was
able to do that with fedora 14 the same as for the last several
releases, but for fedora 15 there is no install.img file in /images on
the DVD.iso. *Here's what ls shows for the last two DVD iso images:

Fedora-14-i386-DVD.iso

ls images

efiboot.img *efidisk.img *install.img *pxeboot *TRANS.TBL

Fedora-15-i386-DVD.iso

ls images

pxeboot *TRANS.TBL

Where can I get an install.img for fedora 15?

The installation guide looks similar to previous versions and it
discusses install.img:
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/15/html/Installation_Guide/s1-steps-hd-installs-x86.html

Someone else asked about this about a week ago and no one offered an
answer. *It would be nice to know if there is somewhere to get
install.img for f15 or a pointer to directions to create one. For
some of the systems I'm using fedora on a hd install is by far the
fastest (instead old, slow usb or cd/dvd).

BTW - while fishing an answer to this question I noticed some errors
in the installation guide and filed a bug report, just mentioning it
so no one else takes the time to file one for the same thing.

Cheers,

It seems to be built into the initrd.img file now,
you can go back to doing installs with only the
iso file, vmlinux, and initrd.img (the way it worked
before they decided you had to have install.img).

If it really says you need one, sounds like it was just
cut&paste from previous releases and needs fixing.
