RHEL Installed over NFS

I have installed RHEL by way of CD's quite a few times, but I was interested in what is necessary to install it over a network via NFS. I searched TLDP, but came up empty-handed...
Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks so much!

here are the steps...
dump all your cds in one folder (say /redhat)..... remember DO NOT make subfolders. just copy the files and few files not necessary for installations(text files) would be prompted for it. Then,
vi /etc/exports
add a line,
/redhat              *(ro,sync)
save and exit the file. restart the nfs with
service nfs restart
check status of exports with
you should get something like
/redhat <world>
what you have done here is shared your /redhat folder on nfs with read only permission. * indicated shared globally, you can give a specific IP there.

now at client side use first cd for bootup. at prompt give,
linux askmethod
select nfs on a further screen.

thats it. your nfs installation is in progress now. remove the cd.
