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.

We recently purchased a 1TB Seagate 7200RPM hard disk.
I installed this hard disk on a server and configured NFS server.
I have mounted the nfs share on 2 clients and continuously extract information to the nfs share.
Whilst extracting the information, the NFS server loses the partition table of the hard disk on hdd . fdisk -l doesn't show any indication of /dev/hdd1. However when i reboot the server the partition table for hdd (1TB drive) re-appears.
The server is using Gentoo with kernel 220.127.116.11. The processor is Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU E2180 @ 2.00GHz.
This is the error messages, that i have observed from the NFS server.
May 26 16:40:05 ftp-svr ide: failed opcode was: unknown
May 26 16:40:05 ftp-svr hdd: no DRQ after issuing MULTWRITE_EXT
May 26 16:40:05 ftp-svr ide1: reset: master: error (0x00?)
May 26 16:40:05 ftp-svr end_request: I/O error, dev hdd, sector 171791
May 26 16:40:05 ftp-svr end_request: I/O error, dev hdd, sector 171799
May 26 16:40:05 ftp-svr end_request: I/O error, dev hdd, sector 171807
May 26 16:40:05 ftp-svr end_request: I/O error, dev hdd, sector 171815
May 26 16:40:05 ftp-svr end_request: I/O error, dev hdd, sector 171823
May 26 16:40:05 ftp-svr end_request: I/O error, dev hdd, sector 171831
and it goes on through all the sectors of the hard disk.
Could this be a defective hard disk or am I overlooking something?
Your opinion is much appreciated
