While LFS is capable of mounting network file systems such as NFS, these are not mounted by the mountfs init script. Network file systems must be mounted after the networking is activated and unmounted before the network goes down. The netfs bootscript was written to handle both boot-time mounting of network filesystems, if the entry in /etc/fstab contains the _netdev option, and unmounting of all network filesystems before the network is brought down.
As the root user, install the /etc/rc.d/init.d/netfs bootscript included with the blfs-bootscripts-6.1 package.
