I've been having the same problem since installing FC3 on my file
server. Unfortunately, neither upgrading util-linux or using mount -o
udp has solved anything. The client just keeps telling me the server is
down even though I can ping the server, rpm -q confirms I have the right
version of util-linux, and SElinux is disabled. Any one have any other
ideas?
