I'd  like to chime in on this.

There are some serious problems with Linux NFS support. At the company 
where I work, we use Solaris NFS servers on Sun hardware, with a mix of 
many UNIX clients (including some BSD and Mac OS X). The biggest 
problems come from Linux clients.

The interesting thing to note with Linux is that it hoses itself after 
a while. If the user reboots their Linux client, the problems go away 
for a few weeks.

We've messed with options in automount and AMD, but no help.
