RK: I changed /etc/fstab on the sun4m machine to:
RK: roothog:/u2/netbsd_2.0 /usr/src nfs rw,-r=1024,-w=1024

You might want to experiment with 4096 or 8192.  I used to have problems
with my IPX once upon a time doing stuff like this -- 1024 was a severe

work well.

[I believe 8192 was also the max blocksize for nfs2, so I was quite surprised
at the time when I found we were using 32k!]

    2. n. A layer of underworld beasties, or, if dealing with computers,
    the ghost in the machine ( L 'demon', beast + 'strata', layers).
