$subject seems broken for me for 5.1 miniinst.iso

Export /cdrom from; exports line:
/cdrom -maproot=0 -alldirs -network 10.2 -mask
(nfs server setup is well tested).

when prompted for nfs info during install, give,
netmask (same subnet as target machine) -> configure
install target network (ip -> get error:

Error mounting on /dist: no such file or directory

On ttyv4 find error messages (hand copied):
mount_nfs: can't update /var/db/mountdtab for
mount_nfs: Operation not supported by device

On ttyv4 I can cd to /dist

Anyone have suggestions?
