To clarify this a little more, I have done numerous NFS installs of
Fedora successfully, using either the full DVD or CD iso files.

I have not done an NFS install using the boot.iso cd that one finds in
the images directory as described above. I did, however, boot my machine
to the boot.iso cd just now and I see the same install options are there
on the screen.

I'll have to give this a shot next time.
