If you've got a CD attached to the PCI-104 (possibly via USB) you
should be able to get the installer to boot from the Fedora install CD
then install to the USB drive.  Or try the netboot as suggested by the
other person.  I think booting from a CD is going to be easier.  

I suggest you find a local expert system administrator if you're
serious about getting this done by tomorrow.
