shot in the dark here but are you using an initrd
if so make sure that the required modules are present in the initrd
also adding the modules to /etc/modules may not help if the system is attempting
to mount all the local drives before the extra modules are loaded via
Suspect the problem may be that the call to mount that drive is made before the
module is loaded, so check the logs for messages regarding device not found.

this may be no help at all.
May be worth looking at /etc/rc.sysinit, I don't run ubuntu so I'm not sure
about the order of its operations, but I would have expected that all the
additional modules should be loaded as early as possible but that may not be
case, or it may be limited to what modules are in the initrd.
