hi reduxiam,

the problem is, that the system tries to mount the devices before network-service has started. You have to tell the system in which runlevel the devices can be mounted.

You have an invalid fstab entry and are missing 'nfs' in your mount point entry in /etc/fstab.

Your /etc/fstab entry should look like the following:

: /path/to/local/mountpoint nfs nfsvers=3,bg,intr 0 0

Give that a whirl and see how you get on.

You can try a 'mount -a -t nfs' to see if it mounts ok. Then try a reboot to see if it mounts.
