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 am trying to set up NFS for the first time and have been unable to mount a network directory successfully. When I try to mount one of the server's directories (via "mount damnserver:/home /mnt/home") from the client machine I get the message "mount: RPC: Timed out".
My client machine is a fresh install of Red Hat 7.1 workstation without X. I have modified it with the command route to get TCP/IP going, added the local host IP and host name to the /etc/hosts file, and made sure the portmaper is going with rpcinfo.
rpcinfo -p on client 'damnplay2':
program vers proto port
1000000 2 tcp 111 portmapper
1000000 2 udp 111 portmapper
1000024 1 tcp 1024 status
1000024 1 tcp 1024 status
My server is a fresh install of Mandrake 7.2 server(I have also tried Redhat 7.1 server). I have modified the server by setting up TCP/IP routing, adding hosts to /etc/hosts, and added the line "/ damnplay2(rw)" to /etc/exports(I'll worry about security when I get it going).
