It might be a problem of modules missing in your initrd. Sometimes it is
enough to recreate the initrd with mkinitrd.yaird instead of the normal
mkinitrd. (I think yaird is specifically optimized for 2.6 kernels.)
Another possibility would be to compile all NFS drivers statically into
the kernel, if you are willing to build a custom one.
