There is some info about this in the archives a while back I believe.
It's a networking problem IIRC.  Try setting the MTU on the client and/or
server to something lower, and/or fiddle with the [rw]size options of the
clients to smaller or larger sizes, and like that.  And make sure that
all your machines have NFS packages (nfs-common, nfs-kernel-server)
that are up to date with the version of the kernel that you are using.

Also check the settings of the controller on the SS5, is it FD, HD and
like that.

Are you running it UDP or TCP?
