I am trying to install RedHat linux on to workstation using NFS option.  How do I set up an NFS server so that my workstation can access the CDROM? I am using RH 5.0 on server, workstation connected with ethernet.

You should give access to that workstation:

In the server:
1) Mount your RedHat CDROM.
2) Add your mount point to /etc/exports this way:
    /mnt/cdrom    xx.xx.xx.xx/255.255.255.255
where xx's stand for your workstation IP address.
3) Run exportfs

In the workstation, boot RH install disk, select NFS install and follow the program instructions (which will tell you to configure the workstation net card and to insert server's IP address and shared directory (/mnt/cdrom, in the example).

Told me exactly what I needed to know word for word.  If I were grading on knowing exactly what I needed, I would say A:, but some people may not know to have portmap installed (poor sods).  Thank you very much you have made my day. :-)

I assumed that you had installed NFS server in your machine.
If you have RH 5, rpm won't let you install that package without installing portmapper's one (dependencies, ya know :-)
Thanks.
