If the filesystems are not needed until the system is up multiuser, you
could specify the 'late' option on them in fstab, forcing them to be
delayed until /etc/rc.d/mountlate is run after /etc/rc.d/DAEMON has
completed. This will ensure that named is running prior to the mount,
since DAEMON requires SERVERS, which starts named.
