NFS+VMware unable to install CentOs from nfs


Hello there, I am trying to install CentOS from a network, I have install VMware server on my computer, after that I create a virtual PC, until now everything was working normally, but when I start to configure my nfs I start to have problems, I am trying to do an experiment so I can install cent os from a nfs share but is not working, I have mount it my iso image on my server also the directories but all the time I get something like, couldn't mount the directory from the server.

Can someone tell me a good tutorial for CentOS or at leats a clue. Thank you for your time.

Bogdan,
