Not sure what you mean by "boot from that".  Since you are playing
with virtual machines, perhaps you mean something like:

losetup /dev/loop0 /nfs/location/to/store
... pass /dev/loop0 to a Virtual machine
(likely to be slow - you probably want a SAN instead)

Or perhaps you mean that "location/to/store" is an LV on another host,
and the other host will boot a virtual machine from store.
