[Beowulf] network filesystem

I have a small (16 dual xeon machines) cluster. We are going to add
an additional machine which is only going to serve a big filesystem via
a gigabit interface.

Does anybody knows what is better for a cluster of this size, exporting the
filesystem via NFS or use another alternative such as a cluster filesystem
like GFS or OCFS?

Thanks in advance
