I tried this but there are still problems.  At the very very start, the
install starts to insmod sunrpc, lockd, and nfs, and then craps out. 
Anaconda dies on a sig 11 with no unusual log messages.  The basic problem
seems to be the failure of the installer to insmod the NFS components.
The bootnet.img was taken directly from the images/ directory of the x86
6.2 CD.  Ideas?
