There shouldn't BE a /home2 on HTTPD but I figured out what happened. I
copied /etc/group /etc/passwd /etc/pwd.db and /etc/master.passwd from NFSD
to HTTPD to sync users and passwords and forgot to edit the home dir with
vipw. I just did a global search and replace of /home2 to /home and
rebuilt the pwd.db and it mounted fine and apache now serves "public_html"
from the users shells.

However, on reboot it doesn't mount from /etc/fstab, I have to mount it
manually for some reason. So now I'm down to the one NFS problem.

on NFSD: (/etc/exports)
/home2           -maproot=0 -alldirs     httpd

on HTTPD: (/etc/fstab)
NFSD:/home2              /home           nfs     rw,bg           0       0

<manually mounting works>
mount NFSD:/home2 /home

Works fine until I reboot. Shouldn't it mount by itself like it used to?
What am I missing now? Why doesn't HTTPD mount NFSD:/home2 on /home when
it reboots?
