Red face Reducing the timeout duration for NFS Mount

Hello all,

My machine has several entries in the /etc/fstab related to NFS. When I reboot the machine and if the REMOTE NFS servers are not available, it takes lot of time for the machine to reboot.

Is there a option that I can set in /etc/fstab to reduce the NFS timeout duration or any other option that can be used to get rid of this long startup time?
