unmounting NFS filesystems failed???


When I'm trying to shut down my Mandrake 8.2, I get the following error message:

Unmounting NFS filesystems: [FAILED]

What is this? The only thing I can do is: NOTHING! I must shut down my computer by ... yes, you know what - pressing the small button on my box! Ugh!
What can I do?
Does this help you?

My /etc/fstab:

/dev/hdb6 / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/scd0 /mnt/cdburner iso9660 user,ro,noauto 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 user,ro,noauto 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto user,noauto,ro 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windowsc ntfs ro 0 0
/dev/hda5 /mnt/windowsd ntfs ro 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb5 swap swap defaults 0 0

If you don't have any network file systems then try configuring so that nfs does not start up with the computer. Just an idea not sure if that will solve it. It can't unmount stuff if it was never started.
