I've used Debian Live with a CIFS share, but with anonymous access. I
used the following parameters for BOOTAPPEND_LIVE:

        netboot=cifs nfsroot=//${server}/${share}/
I think I played with username/password options but I can't recall
whether I got anything working, so I can't really help with the nfsopts
