In the file /etc/rc (I think) there should be a line that look like 

mount -a -t nfs

that needs to be changed to 

mount -a -t nfs,cd9660
Or something to that effect (I'm doing this from memory from last year).
I'm sure there is someone out there who actually knows for sure about
this.  If you can't get it working, let me know with another mail, and
I'll look it up on my system at home to know for sure.
