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 think macos has nfs capabilities, but you can also download netatalk: http://netatalk.sourceforge.net/
and set up the linux box to run appletalk, although you might have to recompile your kernel to support the protocol as well...
I just got my Linux server set up a few days ago for a Mac network (all running OSX 1.3.5). I had lots of trouble with netatalk dealing with long file names & case sensitivity. I couldn't get nfs working at all - when I try to mount an NFS share on the Mac, I get an error "incorrect username or password". Finally I tried Samba and everything works perfectly. I have no trouble with long file names & no more case sensitivity headaches.
I'm using Libranet 2.8.1 with a reiserfs file system.

to mount linux nfs share on OS X Mac, you need one of two things:
export the share as insecure on the Linux box, e.g.
or use the resvport and possibly nfsvers=2 options on the OS X box, e.g.
mount -t nfs -o nfsvers=2,resvport 192.168.1.1:/home /Volumes/linux_home
The first option is less secure, but allows you to use OS X Finder's Go/Connect to Server menu with address like "nfs://192.168.1.1/home". I haven't figured out yet how to pass options to "Connect to Server".
I'm having a different problem with Netatalk. I'm trying to have the Mac clients connect to the Linux server (Suse 9.2 Pro) and it connects just fine. The problem comes when I try transferring large files. When I transfer a file 90+ MB, the Mac client will get kicked off and freeze up. It has happened to me many times and I don't know what the problem is. The Mac clients are OSX. I'm totally desperate for help here! Please anyone help!
