NFS question?

I've got an NFS problem, and I'm not sure if it's related to the kernel
or not. runs AMD, some old version. It mounts most of the
local systems. Running from 1.3.100 to 1.99.3, I can access the disk and
copy files and all that sort of stuff. Works ok.

The problem is that if I edit or copy a file onto router's disk, then telnet
into router, and try to execute the file, I *ALWAYS* get "text file busy". It
won't let me execute it even though the modes are correct, etc. The only way
to get the kernel to allow me to run it is to mv the file to another name, then
cp it to the proper name. Even then, it won't let me execute the mv'd file.

Could it be that AMD is the culprit? Or maybe an old NFSd/mountd stuff?
The two machines in question (and it happens with more than these two) are based
on the last Slackware out.
