Now that I understand why it doesn't work (comcast fun) I would like to 
use my local copy anyway.

On the apache box:
/home/carl/linux/ubuntu/hoary-install-i386.iso on 
/home/carl/html/ubuntu/iso type iso9660 (rw,loop=/dev/loop0)

[root at dev html-default]# ln -s /home/carl/html/ubuntu/iso/ ubuntu

So I enter my local apache box:

and bam! away we go!

If someone will review what I have posted here and give it the thumbs 
up, I will post it on the wiki.
