How to prepare for NFS Installation?

I am in attempt to setup NFS Repository for Linux Installation.
All I need is When I select NFS for Red Hat Installation Method it should connect to NFS once I provide IP and complete Directory Path.
I should be able to setup Apache showing me all the Red Hat ISO/ Directories whatever.
pls Help

All you have to do is to copy the contents of CDs (or DVD) to one directory and export that through NFS on some other PC in your network. Boot installation with 'askmethod' parameter, so you will have possibility to choose between HTTP, FTP or NSF installation and as you said you need to point at the server and path. I don't get why are you trying to setup Apache. That's just the different installation method... If you have installation directory shared with NFS you don't need to mess around with httpd.
