I wish it was as simple as blaming MS for this one, but no - i tested
this locally on the w2k box (dd cmd making 5 GB file), and then by
actually running the dump | gzip > nfs_share (7 GB .gz) but using nfs
v3, mounted by hand instead of via amd.
I still dont know whether the problem was v2, which supposedly has a 2
GB limit, or amd, but mounting the share via /etc/fstab with options
-3,-d,rw worked just fine.
