Mounting a nfs partition on boot time


I'd like to know what do I have to add to the /etc/fstab to mount a nsf partition. Now, to mount the partition I must type mount hostIp:/directory mountPoint, but I want to be able to do it automatically on boot time, so I guess I have to add a line to the /etc/fstab but I don't know what should I type.

Thank you in advance,

Mounting an NFS partition is really no different than any other partition:
nfs.server:/nfs/data /home/nfs nfs defaults,noatime 0 0
Essentially, just substitute the normal devices with a standard nfs 'address'.
