Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I think the difference between what you do and what I do is that I have "/mnt" exported (the top level directory). And within that I have mounted the loop device (in your case, i guess your ISO is mounted at /mnt/iso).
My /etc/exports file looks like this
If I export the /opt/nfs/dir1 directly, I am able to access it, but NOT when I try it this way.
I think I might be asking for too much, but can you try it by exporting the /mnt directory, mounting your ISO at /mnt/iso, then trying to NFS mount the /mnt/iso? If that works for you, then I'm definitely screwing up something :-)
Edit: I set the /etc/exports the same as yours, and restarted the NFS server. That didn't work. And BTW my fs_image file's permissions are set to 777.
