Yes, but you'll need to boot a different image from the CDROM first.
Go to the http://www.fedora.redhat.com/en/get-fedora-all page and click the "i386 - Install CDs" link or the "x86_64 - Install CDs" link. Grab the "netinst" ISO. Should be about 200MB. Burn and boot that. When you get the boot menu, hit the Tab key and add to the boot options line "text askmethod" During the install, it'll ask you what media to use.
Choose Hard Drive and it'll ask you which partition and the directory containing the ISO images (in this case the DVD image).
See http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5/html/Installation_Guide/s1-begininstall-hd-x86.html for more docs on Hard Drive installs. (Yeah, it's RHEL docs, but the Fedora process is very similar if not identical.)
