You need to get at the install.img file and put it in subdirectory
images on the NFS server

In my case the iso is in /exports/global/cdrw/F11 and the final
structure looks like this 

maui.jaa.org.uk F11 1004# ls -lR /exports/global/cdrw/F11
total 4172172
-rw-r--r-- 1 ja   sysadmin 4268124160 Jun  9 22:25 Fedora-11-x86_64-DVD.iso
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root           4096 Jun 10 09:45 images

total 113780
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 116391936 Jun 10 09:45 install.img
So ..
mount -o loop /exports/global/cdrw/F11/Fedora-11-x86_64-DVD.iso /mnt/zip

mkdir /exports/global/cdrw/F11/images
cp /mnt/zip/images/install.img /exports/global/cdrw/F11/images

umount /mnt/zip 

Then when asked at install time enter
