Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

sometimes this will help, i believe the 1 at the end will tell fstab to retry the mount again later at the end of boot, possibly after your net starts.
From the man page for "fstab":
The sixth field, (fs_passno), is used by the fsck(8)
program to determine the order in which filesystem checks
are done at reboot time. The root filesystem should be
specified with a fs_passno of 1, and other filesystems
should have a fs_passno of 2. Filesystems within a drive
will be checked sequentially, but filesystems on different
drives will be checked at the same time to utilize parallelism
available in the hardware. If the sixth field is not present
or zero, a value of zero is returned and fsck will assume that
the filesystem does not need to be checked.

I spent a long time to find the problem: STP - Spanning Tree Protocol.
When a host is attached such as a computer, printer or server the switch port will always go into the forwarding state, albeit after a delay of about 30 seconds while it goes through the listening and learning states.
