Actually I am being helpful, given the limited information provided.
There are a whole host of issues with Samba and NFS fixed between
RHEL5.3 and RHEL5.8/5.9 that are likely to be related to his problem.
Trust me I have the scars to prove it.

Then I believe he won't be able to fix his problem. He might be able to
patch over the problem with deadtime and max connections options but
that is not really a fix, and won't address the gaping security holes in
his setup.
