still can't get the nfs volume to mount on boot. fstab looks like this...

"mount -a" makes it mount right up. just not on boot. why?

I've had lots of timing issues with NFS (on Debian). I finally gave up and brute-forced it:

$ cat /etc/rc.local    # < DEBIAN!
# Ugly hack-around for NFS "hang on boot" problem until I upgrade
sleep 120
/etc/init.d/rpcbind start && /etc/init.d/nfs-common start && /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server start

Until I did the above my Debian Squeeze (yeah, I know, upgrading that Real Soon Now) would hang for 20-30 MINUTES on a reboot.

Ugly hack that shouldn't be needed, but...maybe...
