Description Gerry Reno 2006-12-23 20:16:55 EST
Description of problem:
Tried installing a new guest machine in XEN Virtual Machine Manager by NFS
mounting a CDROM drive and then loading the drive with FC6 installation media.
Mount was as follows:
# mount /media/nfscdrom-hdb
# mount | grep nfs
sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)
nfsd on /proc/fs/nfsd type nfsd (rw) on /media/nfscdrom-hdb type nfs

ls /media/nfscdrom-hdb
eula.txt              RELEASE-NOTES-en_US.html   RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-rawhide
Fedora                repodata                   RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-test

Install location must be an NFS, HTTP, or FTP install source.

I was finally able to get the NFS install started by using the form:
nfs: instead of the nfs mount I created.
