When you are in the installer, go to console 2 (Alt-F2) and you should
have a shell.  From there you can run ifconfig and see if the network
has been setup correctly.  If so, ping the NFS host and see if it's
reachable.  Then check if the NFS share is mounted, etc.  That should
help you locate the problem.

Also, check the other consoles (Alt-F3 through F5 or F6) for any
relevant output right after you try to connect to the NFS share in the
main installer screen.  It might give you some hints as to why the
system isn't finding the image it needs.
