I received two replies regarding this matter, but none of the suggested
answers solved the problem, so the problem still lingers; the most
meaningfull answer came from don krausse who suggested that I do a mount
with "vers=2" appended to the mount commandline. That's,

mount nfsserver:/path /mount_point -o vers=2

My original question is below: I'm still searching for the answer, but
currently I've resorted to using samba to mount the solaris exported
shares to a linux the slackware box.
