this is the way I normally mount it (from my laptop's /etc/fstab)

magazzino:/public       /mnt/nas/public         nfs     defaults,noauto,tcp,user        0 0

it works without tcp as well.

then I tried

server "magazzino"
path (of the folder containing the iso) = "/public/....."

Reading the log of anaconda it seems it tries 1st to retrieve it already mounted, then it tries to
mount it (but it does not show exactly the mount command.

it is on a NAS that cannot mount iso unfortunately.

IIRC when I installed F9 I succeeded, then I tried F10 and had to go via Internet.

I would like it to be easier (and easier to detect user error)

1) clearly let the user specify if the ISO is mounted or not
2) print exactly the mount command (with error message) so that people can find workaround.
