I have some workstations where I mount working directories at boot. The 
directories that should be mounting are in /etc/fstab. All workstations 
are FreeBSD 8.1 and there are both i386 and amd64. On the i386 machines 
it works very well. But on the amd64 something happends.

When booting amd64 it looks like it try to mount the nfs directories 
before the network is up. On the screen I can see that it try to mount 
and then there is a line telling that the network interface is up. There 
it locks up for some minutes before it continue and mounting.
When the system is up it all works well but it's annoying to wait nearly 
five minutes for an workstation to came up.
These amd64 machines are from different vendors and have different 
network devices.

Maybe there are some easy configuration fix, but I can't find it.

Best regards
