NFS mount problem during xen guest creation

I have some problem while installing the guestOS on xen. I have posted the same in virtualisation forum but could'nt get any response.

My problem is with the nfs mounting at the time of installation of the guestOS. dom0 has already installed. By using virt-manager, I am able to proceed to choosing the NFS server name/ipno & the nfs directory. The NFS directory is /home/virtual. But after the network configuration message, it shows that directory could not be mounted. But installation upto this step had been done from this directory (/home/virtual).

I have given the install location while the installation of guest as /home/vertual (Where the Fedora DVD.iso is mounted as loop)

I think this is the problem with nfs and not xen. Hence I am posting here

Early reply is expected

But how to execute the command

# mount -o loop /mnt/Downloads/centos/Fedora-11-i386-DVD.iso /home/vertual

This command mounts the iso image on /home/vertual

mount -o loop nolock /mnt/Downloads/centos/Fedora-11-i386-DVD.iso /home/vertual
fails I have tried other combinations also

What is the exact systax?
