There is a problem with installing from a hard disk, too - high on the rudeness scale since it formats your /boot and root file systems just before it fails. You can work around the NFS installation problem by hexedit'ing your -DVD.iso file - see comments 10 and 15 in bugzilla.
This is a Fedora 9 blocker bug, so it should be fixed by the time Fedora 9 becomes generally available.
