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 found a post that reported that the nfs deamon stays hooked to your systems if it is not shutdown correctly. The post referred to Fedora 2, I haven't test it on FC4 but this days when I have strange errors with nfs when everything should be write I just reboot my machine just to make sure there is nothing stuck in memory.
PS:I edited this message after I post because I tried to run the command you specified "showmount -e 127.0.0.1" and the first time I ran it gave the same error it gave you. I then did "service nfs start" and ran "showmount" and it returned what it was supposed to return. So I think you really should reboot your machine and make sure all daemons needed to run nfs correctly are loaded.
