Hello. I have a NFS server running with this /etc/exports file: /var/fedora *(ro) where /var/fedora is the loop mount point to the iso of Fedora's installation DVD.

When I boot a client machine with a CD running the netinstaller (http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/19/Fedora/x86_64/iso/Fedora-19-x86_64-netinst.iso) and I put as a package source the option "nfs" and I write "nfs_server_ip:/var/fedora" in textbox, after a while Anaconda ignores me and puts the default package source (something like "nearest mirror" or so).

What am I doing bad??

If I try with boot parameter repo=nfs::nfs_server_ip:/var/fedora it's the same...

P.D: Another thing is the option "nfsiso" isn't showed as an option in Anaconda's package sources combobox

Well, thanks, but it's not the bug I'm talking about
