installing fc3 via nfs


I have started the install through "linux text" and chosen "NFS" as the source.

I have got to almost 50%, but i get a message similar to "a package can not be opened, this is due to a missing file or perhaps a corrupt package. If you are installing from cd media etc. Press return to try again."

I am installing over NFS and using 4 folders - Disc1, Disc2, Disc3, Disc4.

The ISOs have been extracted to these folders.

The result of /usr/sbin/exportfs is:
Code:
/mnt/downloads/fc3/disc1
                192.168.1.0/24
/mnt/downloads/fc3/disc2
                192.168.1.0/24
/mnt/downloads/fc3/disc3
                192.168.1.0/24
/mnt/downloads/fc3/disc4
                192.168.1.0/24

Is it possible that anaconda can not automatically switch between folders?

If this is the case, how do i proceed?

I completed install a few hours back, I copied all rpms to ../disc1/RPMS

The problem now is booting into linux. Any time I boot my apple, it goes straight into OSX.

from parted:
--
Using /dev/hda
(parted) print
Disk geometry for /dev/hda: 0.000-28615.781 megabytes
Disk label type: mac
Minor Start End Filesystem Name Flags
1 0.000 0.031 Apple
2 0.031 0.058 Macintosh
3 0.059 0.085 Macintosh
4 0.086 0.113 Macintosh
5 0.113 0.140 Macintosh
6 0.141 0.390 Macintosh
7 0.391 0.640 Macintosh
8 0.641 0.890 Patch Partition
12 0.891 1.890 hfs untitled boot
10 128.891 9270.792 hfs Apple_HFS_Untitled_2
9 9270.793 27847.781 ext3 untitled
11 27847.781 28615.781 linux-swap swap swap
--

I tried getting around this using
Code:
yabootconfig -r /dev/hda9 -b /dev/hda12 --kernel /boot/vmlinuz-* --initrd /boot/initrd-*
but always receive an error message of some variety. any ideas?
