    It probably says NTFS, not nfs.

    This means you picked the right partition, but there's an NTFS file system on the partition where the bootloader files are installed. So, you're reusing a windows partition to install on. Can't be done.
    During install you will meet the partitioner. Tell it to make the / (and /home if that's on a separate one partition have an ext3 filesystem, reinstall, done.
