Hi,

In you kickstart file you can specify the IP address of the server you are installing or DHCP if you want the IP to be assigned automatically.
For instance :
network --device eth0 --bootproto static --ip 192.168.0.1 --netmask 255.255.255.0 --gateway 192.168.0.254 --nameserver 192.168.0.254
Or
network --device eth0 --bootproto dhcp

Anaconda will just setup the network for you.
If the network is setup properly your host will be able to communicate with any server.
If the NFS is on a different subnet you should pay attention to the gateway parameter. The gateway is responsible for the communication between subnets.

Thank you for the info, but in the kickstart file first we are putting install, and then network. Isn't it a problem?

You mean the order of the declarations?
No it should be a problem, there is no 'order' in the kickstartfile
