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.

hi, i want to do linux installation on client machine from server.
i configured NFS server. i actually all 5 CD's to one directory. these are not iso images.
i created directory /serverimage and inside this i created directory for each linux cd. i.e linuxcd1, linuxcd2 and so on ..
now my directory structure is :
now i exported /serverimage in /etc/exports
but when i boot my client machine with the first linux cd. and using linux askmethod
i selected NFS. i entered ip address for nfs server and directory as /serverimage
but it is not taking. saying unable to mount.
shall i create .iso images. i dont want to use .iso images since i want to configure yum repository later once client is installed. i dont know if yum repository can be installed using iso images on the server.
so i just copied cdrom to directories to share it via nfs.
