I've got a boot up timing race issue.

Here is what I'm trying to do. I want to mount a Samba share from a remote
machine on boot up. Presently I have the appropriate entry in /etc/fsatb,
such that I can mount the share _once I am in multiuser_. I have figured
out how to get the smbfs kernel module loaded at boot time, using

However, it appears that the remaining problem is that the NIC is not yet
configured when the startup scripts try to mount the file systems. Therefore
the system drops to a shell prompt since it can't mount _all_ the
file systems.

Seems like this issue would exist for NFS file systems that were staticly
mount (as opposed to automonted).

How can I get around this?
