Most people prolly already know this but here it goes..
I ran into problems with nfs not supporting files more than 2GB in size.
so i did a little googling and found out that this limitation is only in
nfs v2, v3 is limitation of the filesystem,so depending on which fs you
should have support for files >2GB.
I'm not sure if default kernels (distros) are build with nfs v3 support
but to use nfs v3
This command should work
mount -o ver=3 -t nfs /yournfsmount /yourlocalmount
or you could go all out and use nfsv4 :)
