Of course not it belongs in /etc/init.d like the LSB says ;) I expect Mandrake has some legacy symbolic links from previous times they haven't removed yet.
but I can't find any packages on packages.debian.org that relate to "nfslock".
"apt-cache search nfs lock" would suggest amongst others nfs-common. The spiel for nfs-common says it contains the lock daemon.
Anyone got any ideas how to do nfslocking so that I can mount NFS shares? I'm so close that it's frustrating! Link: http://www.thursby.com/support/faq.lasso?id=196
Kernels 2.4 and later don't need a specific lockd daemon they start a kernel thread - or so the nfs-common start-up script claims on Debian Sarge (/etc/init.d/nfs-common). If you have a bespoke kernel this might be a problem, otherwise I suspect your problem is something else. Try "rpcinfo -p IPAddres_of_server" To see what RPC services are registered. I think nlockmgr is what you need to see, if that is there it is not this problem I suspect. The Debian box is probably working fine, it is pretty easy to set up NFS on GNU/Linux. Try using "showmount" to check the exports are correct. Also use the rpcinfo command to see if there are firewall issues or similar.
