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.

Please tell me if this is possible. I have 3 servers. One is Sun 10, second one is RedHat AS 4U6 and one Mac OSX server.
On my Linux box i have an NFS file system mounted from the Sun box. I would like re-export this file system through my Linux box to the Mac server. I've got everything setup in /etc/exports on the Linux box, it looks like this:
I think NFS V4 will not allow this type of NFS spaghetti, mainly for security and data integrity reasons. I've had a similar issue trying to use an NFS file server share as a SAMBA share from a desktop machine, it just doesn't really work.
I also need to be able to export a CIFS (Samba) share via NFS, but have not found any option to allow this. It sucks when the designers remove some cool or useful feature "in spite" of security. When will designers allow users to take our own decisions? Anyway, you're saying that nfs4 won't allow this, but, will nfs < 4?
I think NFS 3 will allow some of this, but I wouldn't recommend it! If you can mount a CIFS share, you can probably set up machines to use that share directly, rather than go through the NFS option. That would be my recommendation anyway.
