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've been working on trying to get NFS to work for a long time but with no success. I can get it to connect to itself and share with itself but not with my other computer running the same distro on the same lan. I used yast to configure the server and client with the firewall off. I've gone through every tutorial I could find and no success. If you need more info let me know. And if anyone has had trouble like this and can give me a little guidance to correcting it. Thank you so much for any help.
For some reason, after upgrading and rebooting, I had the same problem with a previously working nfs setup. I changed the /etc/exports wildcard from "192.168.1.*" to "192.168.1.0/255.255.255.128" which fixed the problem. If you have an /etc/networks entry, you may be able to use the network name instead but I haven't tried it.
