NFSv3 support is present in 2.2.18, however NVSv3 over TCP doesn't work
right at this point (this is valid for 2.4). All the patches that were
floating around and were integrated by major vendors in their kernels were
also integrated in 2.2.18. However, you have to compile it yourself, it
doesn't come as RH update... NFS FAQ and mailing list at

Yes, but you also need LFS support from your glibc. AFAIK, glibc-2.1 from
RH 6.2 is not compiled for LFS.
