NFS partitions can not be mounted during boot or by the super user(root). 

If NFS partitions are mounted manually as root "mount /mountpoint", following
error is given "mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote
locking Either use "-o nolocks" to keep locks local, or start statd.". 

Following is an example line in fstab file: 
"machine.domain.fi:/export/home     /mountpoint            nfs   
resize=8192,wsize=8192 0 0"

I can kinda work around this by booting to runlevel 3.  I invoke:

$ rpcbind -d

and then in another shell I invoke:

$ service nfs restart
$ mount -a

and I seem to be able to mount my home directory again.
