Many thanks,

In between time I tried, and copied into /etc/fstab the relevant section of 
the fstab file of my former Mandrake 10.1 install, did a sudo mount -a, and 
lo and behold my nfs partitions are mounted.

But quite frankly, I dont understand how it solved this problem  ;-3(

Interestingly enough the creation of the mounts did not work in Webmin either, 
but now that I have butchered fstab webmin recognizes them too.

               You need only two tools, a hammer and duct tape.
              If it doesn't move and it should, use the hammer.
                  If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.
