mounting problem in local file system

The following is my /etc/fstab file entry for the file system on the second disk(data disk)

"/dev/sdb1 /vobfs ext3 defaults 1 2"

But it is not mounting while booting.But if you give the command
" mount /vobfs " then it is mounting(strange ?).But it is not allowing to write any thing.
Here the strange thing is If I follow the following procedure it is working perfectly

1.comment the line /etc/fstab
2.boot the system
3. mount /dev/sdb1 /vobfs
4. cd /etc/init.d
5. ./nfs restart
what could be problems for filesytem being not mounted eventhogh entry is there in /etc/fstab
