Ok, try creating a different mount point for your source, one that is not under /mnt, and one that is not named "setup".

also, check the log on the server machine for any nfs errors.

It's hard to believe the slack setup program just decided to unmount your nfs mounts.

Ok, maybe it's time to back up and let the slack 9 installer mount the directory for you, so don't mount it manually, run setup and then tell it where the mount is.

It just seems that your /etc/exports is kinda thin, perhaps you should give that dir root access...

here's an example, this is not something you want to keep after the install, it's insecure.
/var/exports/slackware/9.0 192.168.1.117(rw, no_root_squash, nohide), you don't really need rw access, could just as easily be ro.

Also, there's a step on the install menu where you define what packages you want, you're doing that and still get nothing? I would think at that point the installer would at least read the nfs share and some activity would be seen on the server.

this is perplexing, I've always and only installed slackware via nfs, it's always worked.

does the line
/var/exports/slackware/9.0 192.168.1.117(ro)
in /etc/exports
give 192.168.1.117 rights to all the files beneath /var/exports/slackware/9.0 ??

if not....
then how would i do that?

also -
any other thoughts?
