Installation with SLP, from NFS source, how to make it work?

I'm trying to set up a SLP server and register the install.suse service in it.

This is what I've written in /etc/slp.reg

service:install.suse:nfs://192.168.1.51/home/kits/linux/distros/suse/i386/9.1,en,65535
description="Network installation SUSE LINUX 9.1 Pro 32 bits"

It appears to be working:

slptool findsrvs install.suse
service:install.suse:nfs://192.168.1.51/home/kits/linux/distros/suse/i386/9.1,65535

I can see it with konqueror too, with slp:/

Mounting the NFS share is also working, and copying from it too.
mount 192.168.1.51:/home/kits/linux/distros/suse/i386/9.1 /mnt
umount /mnt

If I select NFS as installation source when booting from the CD, it works.

Despite all this, it all bombs out dramatically when I select SLP as installation source. linuxrc reports it cannot find the source, and that's it. Is the nfs:// URI syntax wrong in /etc/slp.reg?

All machines have SUSE 9.1 with all updates.
