Installing from iso file: two ext3 partions on the disk

I have googled for how to install Ubuntu without burning a disc, and
found many articles, however, they all assume that one is starting
with a Windows partition. They therefore will not work in my
situation. I currently have Feisty running in hda2 and I want to
install alphas and betas of Hardy in hda1. Therefore, I already have a
bootable Linux partion. Assuming that the iso is on hda4 (/home), and
I have a bootable Ubuntu in hda2 (/), how can I install Hardy in hda1?

The hardware is a Dell Inspiron E1505 / 6400 2gHz DuoCore2 with 2GB
RAM, ATI X1400 and 80GB 7200RPM hard drive. Thanks in advance.
