      Just tried adding sleep NN -- tried up to 120. No value seems to make a difference. I would the PP to mount the NFS partition automatically upon reboot. It mounts fine when I manually execute the script to mount, but not when the same script is called from /opt/etc/init.d. What could be happening?

I mount 3 usb drives without a problem and they remain in their appropriate mount points. Cloudengine's automounter/indexer can cause delays. You can try a "sleep 15" at the beginning of your script and adjust up as needed. If your drive has a lot in it, then indexing could take some time. Why are you cycling through sda2, sdb2? Are you mounting the second partitions from each drive or using multiple hubs?
