volumes, and standard UFS filesystem on each with softupdates (or 

And move as much as possible software directly to machine. Never create 
another level of indirection (like NFS) when not needed.

if you really HAVE to use NFS heavily i strongly recommend using unfsd 
from ports and patch if to AVOID constant fsync, and make sure UPS is
