Is the nfs volume mounted read-only?
If it is, apache won't be able to write the pid, logs, lock file, etc.

Another problem is that if you have more than one machine using the same set
of binaries and httpd.conf under the same nfs volume (even RW), one machine
will overwrite the pid and lock files, since all boxes will have the same
LockFile and PidFile directives in httpd.conf. And all logs will be shared.

Try just 'tail -f' the error log. This is the best way to find out where the
problem is.

cheers
