I just ran into a problem I want to clarify.

When using nfs mounted partitions as a client, the options in fstab need
to have a _netdev parameter set or you get a failure in the mountfs

In the nfs-client bootscript, remote nfs partitions need to be actually

  mount -a -t nfs

This means an update is needed to both the nfs-utils client config and
the bootscript.  I want to verify before I make the changes.
