That's also my experience, which is why I want to hear about RHCS
deployment on Ubuntu, successful or not.  As unforeseen problems are, by
definition, hard to fathom, I would like to hear about those that people
experienced with their own specific.  Hopefully, I can gather enough
such experience to come up with a set of guidelines or best practices
that are generally useful.

That is interesting.  Can you expand a bit on the stale file handle
problem you had with NFS?  Was a public bug ever reported on the
subject?  Is it something that is easy to reproduce?  If not, can you
give a hint about the conditions that would trigger this problem?
