NFS v3 on linux can be forced to udp by throwing "udp" into the mount
options.  Another handy option (likely not appropriate in this case) is
the "intr" option, which lets you interrupt nfs options without hanging
up your processes.  This is can be useful when you serve home
directories via nfs, under some situations.
