Softupdate on 3.4.7 with Debian Squeeze.

I'm kind of at a loss as to where I'm going wrong on this. So far, my
searches in the code hasn't gotten me very far.

I'm attempting to get softupdates working correctly to systematically
update older Lenny systems to Squeeze (then eventually to Wheezy).
What I'm discovering is that the NFSROOT mounts fine, but everything
else fails.

What seems to be going on (I can't seem to locate the actual error in
fai.log, or any of the other logs) is the filesystems aren't mounting.

So, is there a way to get even more verbose logging?

Second, where do I start looking for the filesystem mounts? In sysinfo
all the filesystems mount cleanly, so I'm quite certain there's
something I'm missing for softupdate/lazyformat.
