NFS locks.

I am running Linux on a 486, with 16Mbs of RAM and an Adaptec1542 controller. It is serving as a modem server and it is sharing 4 CD drives to the thin ethernet. The clients of NFS are SunOs and Linux. The kernel is 2.0.29, and the distribution is Debian-1.2.7

The problem is that the NFS service hangs from time to time,
and the problem seems to be the portmapper. I need that machine to be stable. Any clue?

Does anything else "hang" on this machine?  Frequently,
semi-random software failures can be attributed to single
bit RAM errors.  I would suggest swapping out the RAM with
a replacement stick from another machine.  Swapping the
entire RAM with another machine's RAM makes it easier to
locate the instability.
