Source to what?  Every package (except for bundled commercial software)
has an associated source RPM (.src.rpm).  I believe they're on the last
two CDs.
Source RPMS have everything necessary to rebuild RPMS from scratch.  If
you want kernel source, there's no need to install the kernel .src.rpm,
just install the kernel-source RPM.  This contains just the kernel
source code without all the stuff for building a kernel RPM.

Look into kickstart which can be used for fully scriptable
For a fully remote install, you could use a NIC with PXE or an etherboot
or grub floppy to boot kickstart remotely.  You might want to look into
user-mode Linux too.
