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 try to setup a diskless client and have severe problems mounting partitions over NFS - it gives an 'Input/output error' on different files. The errors persists even if i restart all nfs services (lockd,rpc.nfsd, rpc.mountd) or even if I reboot the server PC. On top of all they happen on different files after every reboot of the diskless client.
I also had messages like 'Stale file handle', for some files, however those come if I try to mount same file system on a third machine.
I read whatever I found on that, but it seems there is no definite response. Looks like problem is in the server machine kernel nfsd module, but I am not sure.
I use linux 2.4.26 with nfsd compiled as a module on the server machine and same kernel with nfs client built-in for diskless stations. Exported fs on the server is ext2. There is nothing unusual in the log files.
One more point: I had few diskless computers an year ago and they worked well. I think I had kernel 2.4.18 at that time if I remember well.
