(top posting fixed)

You *don't* need nfs-kernel-server OR nfs-user-server if you only want to 
act as a client.  From the OP's description of the problem, the file system 
eventually mounts but it takes a long time - this is usually because the 
CLIENT is not running the portmapper (or occasionally it's a DNS problem).  

In either case you should not install the nfs server packages unless you 
want to serve local file systems.
