[scyld-users] Help with NFS can't get a request slot

Hi All,

I looked through the archives without success.

We are running 27bz-8 version of scyld using on eth0 a Realtek card rtl8139D 15 
nodes plus the Master.

During large file transfers from our server we get nessages 

nfs: task 273867 can't get a request slot

at frequent intervals until finally access to the Master  is stopped.
I can log in locally and stop the transfer job, and bring eth0 up and all is ok.

Are there some settings I can tweak or does this mean the card may be a bit 
flaky? If so what is a recommended card to use?

Thanks in advance for any advice.
