If you don't know why there are two separate modules, then the .nonfs.
one is probably right for you. (It's the one I've always used on Solaris.)

If I remember correctly, the other one is meant to be used on NFS/AFS
translator machines. The translator functionality may very well be
broken at the moment; I don't use it myself, so I wouldn't know.
