how to configure linux for network installation

hi, i want to do linux installation on client machine from server.

i configured NFS server. i actually all 5 CD's to one directory. these are not iso images.

i created directory /serverimage and inside this i created directory for each linux cd. i.e linuxcd1, linuxcd2 and so on ..

now my directory structure is :
cd /serverimage

now i exported /serverimage in /etc/exports

but when i boot my client machine with the first linux cd. and using linux askmethod

i selected NFS. i entered ip address for nfs server and directory as /serverimage

but it is not taking. saying unable to mount.

shall i create .iso images. i dont want to use .iso images since i want to configure yum repository later once client is installed. i dont know if yum repository can be installed using iso images on the server.
so i just copied cdrom to directories to share it via nfs.

but it is not taking.

what additional steps required????

You have to mount NFS filesystem from client machine. Also you can install the yum repository from the isoimage file.
