From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.7) Gecko/20011226

Description of problem:
line reads:
ks=nfs:<server>/<path>

should read:
ks=nfs:<server>:/<path>

When specifying a nfs share to mount it should be in the form <machine>:/<path>.
I've tested it this way using RH7.3 and it works when I included the ":" but
without mount can't be reached. I can include more info if needed, but it
appears to be a typo in the manual and nothing more.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.put iso images on an nfs share
2.reboot a machine with bootnet.img floppy
3.at boot prompt: "boot: linux ks=nfs:boot.redhat.com/export/iso/" doesn't work,
will hang when box tries to mount
	

Actual Results:  computer was able to connect to dhcp server and get ip address.
Networking is setup, I can ping box from other boxes fine, when it tries to
mount NFS Server, it can't reach boot.redhat.com/export/iso/.

Expected Results:  computer should have mounted boot.redhat.com:/export/iso fine
and continued with kickstart install process
