The whole thing. Kickstart/Anaconda needs to access the files in
RedHat/base.

See above.

You also need to consider where the kickstart file will go. If it's on
a floppy disk, all well and good. If it's on the NFS server, you'll need
to export that directory, although it can be a single mountpoint, e.g.:
/vol/redhat/rh73/RedHat/RPMS
/vol/redhat/rh73/base
/vol/redhat/kickstart

could all be exported by one line:
/vol/redhat	*(ro)
