nfs share in /etc/fstab doesn't mount on startup

view story

http://askubuntu.com – I have an nfs share I'm trying to mount automatically at startup in ubuntu / xbmc I have the following in /etc/fstab nas:/mnt/raid /mnt/raid nfs noauto,rw,async On startup the mount doesn't automatically occur. If I issue a manual mount commant it works: $ sudo mount -o noauto,rw,async -t nfs nas:/mnt/raid /mnt/raid How can I get this mount to occur automatically on startup? Looking for errors in /var/log/messages doesn't yield much, but it does say something about nodiskmount: Kernel command line: \ BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-29-generic \ root=UUID=e575a39a-09d9-4747-be (HowTos)
