Well, your partitions need to be mounted before other tings start happening,
but on the other hand, you eth0 needs to be activated before remote drives can
be mounted......
that's why /etc/init.d/netmount is there ;-)

a simple "chkconfig --add netmount" might solve your problem :D

Depends on wether or not a disk is in, so probably: yes.

At you own risk: rm -R /var/spool/*.*

But you'd wanne have a closer look before doing that ...
