Why are all my fstab mounts not mounting on boot?

I'm having problems gettings all my mount points in my /etc/fstab file to mount correctly. Most of the time I have to manually go in after boot and do a mount -a or mount "fstab mount" in order to get them to work properly. Any ideas?

Could you post your fstab file (or at least one of the lines that is causing you problems)?
