MS SQL 2005 installation on dedicated host server

I have MS SQL 2005 CD.

I want to install MS SQL 2005 on a dedicated host server in a remote location.
But i can't drive to location and put CD in and install because its to far.

I need someone to tell what i can do to overcome this constraint

because remote installation takes a long time.

I herd that you could probably create a ISO image. and then ftp ISO image to dedicated host.
And then extract ISO and download files.
