/etc/fstab used to create the problem
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"

Var/log/messages after boot with 2.6.23-6.fc8 kernel (Fedora 8 test 3)
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.
