I have the following fstab. The nfs filesystem can not be

them. Does anybody know how to enable automatic mount?

You might try adding auto to the options in your fstab line:

 yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy:/pearson/data    /pearson/data   nfs     rw,auto      0

Also, as a side note, you might want to try using nfs4 if your nfs
server supports it.  It is generally faster and more reliable (there
are other good things about it like better locking as well)

Here is my fstab entry (bob is my servername):

bob:/var/data/samba  /var/data/nfs/bob         nfs4    rw,auto  0 0

I'm not sure if the server support nfs4 or not. Do you know how to check it?
