Ubuntu won't automount, manual mount takes forever

I am running Ubuntu 5.10 and cannot automount shares that are on my server. I also run a machine with SuSE 10 and that one automounts just fine. I noticed that whenever I do a manual mount with Ubuntu it takes at least one or two minutes, again the SuSE machine mounts in a matter of seconds when I manually mount. The fstab file for Ubuntu is:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
/dev/hda3       /               ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro 0       1
/dev/hda5       none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/hdc        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
acsserver:/home /home/tparks/server     nfs     default 0 0
acsserver:/shared       /shared         nfs     default 0 0
I am also having an issue with Samba (on both the SuSE and Ubuntu machines. When logged in under WinXP I can only access /shared, but not /home or /home/tparks. The Samba users for all shares seem to be set up the same so I am not sure what the issue may be.

I was advised to look at the log files regarding these two issues. Where would the log files for this be found?

I used to think that penguins were cute and cuddly, they are all staring at me and laughing now, they are planning something...

I disabled SElinux on the server and know I can access the /home and /home/tparks directories under WinXP. If SElinux was stopping me from accessing those directories why did it not stop me from accessing /shared also?
