[clug] Issues mounting a RHEL4 nfs export.

Well, it sounds like the problems at the linux end, not the solaris end.
So tweaking the mount options probably isnt the solution.
I can confirm that Ive successfully mounted a nfs filesystem from a
rhel4 box to a solaris 9 box, which should be similar enough.
Anything special about the filesystem?
What services do you have running?
I get this
chkconfig --list | grep -E 'port|nfs|rpc'
rpcgssd 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
nfslock 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
nfs 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
portmap 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
rpcidmapd 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
Probably not all of those are needed for nfs vers 3.
What does exportfs show.

If the Hunter S Thomson quote "When the going gets weird, the weird turn
pro" is true, why aren't I rich?
