	Probably Linux. If this is a Redhat 6.2 vintage machine, I'm told
that NFSv3 is not usable on Linux. Search the Linux man pages for
NFS/nfsd/mountd/etc. for a -NO_NFS_VERSION_3 or some such and add that to
the line that starts NFS in your rc script(s) and that should fix it when
you reboot your Linux machine.
