Unhappy Unable to install virtual server from NFS mounted install media


I am trying to install a virtual server from NFS mounted install media.

Here is the syntax I am using for the location of the install media:
nfs://hostname.example.com:/INSTALL/RHEL5.1_x86_64

This is the error message I am getting:
Unable to complete install: 'Invalid install location'

Is my syntax correct for an NFS mounted install location?

Please help,
Fred

I've never seen that syntax before.

Assuming the server does have an NFS mount available, I would do something like the following. Either become root to execute these, or preface each command with sudo.
Code:
mkdir /mnt/rhel
mount -t nfs -r hostname.example.com:/INSTALL/RHEL5.1_x86_64 /mnt/rhel
Now the remote directory is mounted at /mnt/rhel (an arbitrary mount point).

Check man mount for more information.
