Ah ok, you're doing a network install (notoriously troublesome), make sure that you can indeed get to the server by pinging it, there could be many reasons for the results you are seeing with NFS, have a gander at this page at [uwsg.iu.edu...] and see if it helps. Alternatively do what I am doing right now (well my puter is anyway) download your favourite distros from [linuxiso.org...] and burn them to CD.
If you mean give it the IP address instead of host name then yes.
