Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have recently installed SuSE 9.0 linux and it has been really a breeze to get it up & running including most of the networking services (Samba,NFS, telnet,ftp, etc). I have windows and linux machines and they all communicate almost perfectly. I said "almost perfectly", because NFS does not work that perfectly yet which I have been searching and trying to resolve for the past few days. The problem is that I am unable to see the files of the mounted windows drive via NFS from another linux machine.
The /home is the top directory of all user accounts on the server linux machine (called 'thunderbird') and /windows is the the top directory of windows drive mount point. Under /windows, I have drives C,D,E,F & G. Those are all FAT32 drives except for G which is NTFS drive.
The /etc/fstab file on server machine (thunderbird) is as follow:
On the client linux machine (called 'k6-2'), the mount points are /thunderbird/home & /thunderbird/windows. I have no problem accessing /thunderbird/home and its subdirectories, however, I can only see the directories in directory /thunderbird/windows and not anything beyond that. I can 'cd' to /thunderbird/windows/C, /thunderbird/windows/D, ..., /thunderbird/windows/G, but cannot see the files in those sub-directories. Protections on those files and sub-directories are rwxrwxr-x.
The /etc/fstab file on client machine (k6-2) is as follow:
