Hmmm It seems that in 9.1 network installs don't work.

I tried NFS, SMB, and FTP.

All connect and authenticate.

None work.

All give an error.

The only error I researched was for NFS:

"Unable to open /var/lib/nfs/state"

Logs on the server showed valid authentication in all cases.

Frustration:::: that is why we have a DVD drive on one machine... so it
can mount and share for network installs to my new computer.

Nice idea, having the option right in the beginning boot screen to
install from CD,NFS,FTP,SMB, etc... BUT IT DOESN'T WORK.
