Usually when that happens, you will get one or two error messages that
will let you know where to fix it. Does it show you what causes it to
not mount? Was it perhaps an NFS error? Or does it mention something
about RPC? If it says something about "Permission Denied", then it's
possible that your nfs server is not running for some reason. It is also
possible that your chroot is not exported in /etc/exports, but this
would be very unlikely since it's auto-configured in Edubuntu.
