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 get the message "RPC: Remote system error, no route to host" when I try to mount a directory from another machine. That is the immediate problem.
The background: I have Redhat Linux 10 installed on two machines which are connected by an ethernet cable (yellow - crossover). There are no other connections to any machines -- no internet connections. This is just a personal project to eventually move from Windows to Linux. I just got thru installing Linux on each of them, and did identical installs. After installing the two systems, I added the following two lines to /etc/hosts on each machine:
192.168.0.43 dell.MSHOME dell
192.168.0.81 main.MSHOME main
I activated eth0 on each machine, and can ping each machine from the other machine successfully. After that, I started up NFS on each machine. A look at Services shows that each is running NFS OK.
I then mounted a directory on dell from main. That worked OK.
I then attempted to mount a directory on main from dell and that is when I got the error message. So I am stuck. Thanks for any suggestions.
