Install source not getting recognized during Para virtual guest install of Xen

Hi !

Need help in resolving an issue:

I am trying to install CentOS guest on CentOS 5.3 host. I have installed all the requirements for the same. As per documentation, only NETWORK install is supported if the guest is to be installed as paravirtalized.I copied the CentOS DVD in /home directory with folder name centos52 and exported it through NFS. When I run Virtual machine manager and give installation path as: nfs:<ip address of host>:/home/centos52 , the system while trying to create the storage fails and throws following error:
Unable to complete install: 'Invalid install location: Mounting location nfs://<ip address of host>:/home/centos52 failed'

Whereas the nfs export of /home/centos is working properly as confirmed by showmount -e localhost output:
/home/centos52 <Host ip network address>(rw,sync)

Please suggest how to resolve the same ?

nfs:<ip address of host>:/home/centos52

I dont know if it would work with nfs: or nfs://
I'd use just ip address:home/centos52/
