For redhat, when you have the boot prompt, type "linux askmethod".  one of
the options after you select language will be 'nfs' (or some such wording).

You have to boot the install with the same version you have NFS.   In other
words, if you have both 32 bit and 64 bit ISO images, you have to boot with
the 32 bit to use the 32 bit ISO files.
the installer will prompt for the NFS server and path to the ISO files.
