8.3.4. Installing via NFS

The NFS dialog applies only if you selected NFS Image in the Installation Method dialog. If you used the repo=nfs boot option, you already specified a server and path.
Enter the domain name or IP address of your NFS server. For example, if you are installing from a host named eastcoast in the domain, enter in the NFS Server field.
Next, enter the name of the exported directory. If you followed the setup described in Section 4.1.2, “Preparing for an NFS installation”, you would enter the directory /export/directory/.
This dialog also allows you to specify NFS mount options. Refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Deployment Guide for a list of common NFS mount options, or consult the man pages for mount and nfs for a comprehensive list of options.
If the NFS server is exporting a mirror of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux installation tree, enter the directory which contains the root of the installation tree. You will enter an Installation Key later on in the process which will determine which subdirectories are used to install from. If everything was specified properly, a message appears indicating that the installation program for Red Hat Enterprise Linux is running.

If the NFS server is exporting the ISO image of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux DVD, enter the directory which contains the ISO image.
