Apt does not support auto-mounting a nfs server before it downloads files
from it, so all I can do is set things up so you can use a pre-mounted NFS
server, which is really handled just as a local mirror is handled. I added
the menu item because I thought it would help people; since people are
instead finding it confising, I will simply remove it.

I need the exact text you entered and/or the generated apt-sources entries
to get anywhere with this. More detail please.

This will be fixed in the next upload.
