FC13 now defaults to NFSv4 which might (or might not) be related to the 
problem you are seeing. You could try to mount the directory with the 
option -o nfsvers=3 and look to see if that makes any difference. Of 
course it is also worth checking that the client really does have 
permission to mount that directory.
