It's most probably a network issue.

explains how to set up an nfs repo. Specify - nfs:<ip of dom0>:/nfs - 
when virt-manager asks for the installation source.

I'd try that but still the console shows "That directory could not be
mounted from the server"
I even had disable the firewall and SELinux at dom0. Is there any more
setting that I need to be done for the nfs server settings?
