I seem to remember that you can't do nested NFS shares.

I have a jumpstart box that I set up with a read-only share, then made 
it writable later to put flash archives on it. Starting as ro and 
changing back to rw may work for you, too. One warning though: I had 
Solaris 10 jumpstart file permissions mangled while shared rw. I forget 
exactly, but there is a startup script in the miniroot that loses its 
"x" bit.
