make sure no program is accessing any files in the mounted nfs export and that there are no cwd (current working dirs) in your system that is the mounted nfs export.

To check:

/sbin/fuser -mu /net

Or, to automatically kill the processes accessing that directory:

/sbin/fuser -k /net

And then unmount it:

umount /net

man fuser for details

Why are you running automount? Is your computer part of a LAN where
some disks are shared between computers? If not, you probably don't need
to be running automount.

I have the same exact error/hang problem on a fresh install of Mandrake 9. The box is connected to a home network, and I am sharing data between Linux and XP, but I don't believe any shares are in use during shutdown.
Is there a 'safe' way to auto-un-automount at shutdown?
