Stop right there. Nobody here could care less about someone running a
wildly out of date server. There are numerous NFS and Samba fixes in
RHEL 5.9 over 5.3  some of which are critical bugs, performance issues
and others are ones that make your box open to remote root compromises.

Upgrade to RHEL 5.9 and get back if you still have a problem.
