I use this on all my servers:
# Port rpc.mountd should listen on.
# Optional arguments passed to rpc.statd. See rpc.statd(8)
# Port rpc.statd should listen on.
# Outgoing port statd should used. The default is port
# is random
And this works on 32 and 64 bit Centos 5.x
Don't forget to open up iptables.
