Ok, I asked our jumpstart person here and they said to try this. He had a similar error.
Make sure your /export/install directory is shared ro anon=0. Check it with the exportfs command.
-         /Jumpstart           ro,anon=0,log   "Jumpstart Profiles Directory"
-         /export/install      ro,anon=0,log     "Jumpstart Install Server Directory"

I hope this helps
