I've only got 16MB in the Cobalt Qube2, so that's not it.  I found  
something on the net that NeXTStep doesn't support larger than 1024 byte  
read & write sizes for NFS, so I changed my fstab to this:
#/etc/fstab   /     nfs   rw,-r=1024,-w=1024 0 0    /usr  nfs   rw,-r=1024,-w=1024 0 0   /home nfs   rw,-r=1024,-w=1024 0 0
/swap   none swap   sw,-r=1024,-w=1024

and that fixed the problem.
