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.

Novell Linux: Linux version 2.6.5-7.201-bigsmp (geeko@buildhost) (gcc version 3.3.3 (SuSE Linux)) #2 SMP Thu May 18 16:06:47 MDT 2006
I have a problem that I hope you can help me understand.
We have a computer environment that consists of using NIS and AMD. We were having a long standing issue of stale NFS mounts, and as it turns out, we had the following parameter set in our amd.conf file: nfs_proto = udp. We were thinking that if we switch from UDP to TCP, this would help get rid of the stale NFS mounts. The problem we are having is when the Linux machine is rebooted, it fails to automount a critical machine (boise1). After the reboot, in order to mount the machine boise1, we have to run the following command: amq -uf /net/boise1. After running amq, life is good. Here's what I observed.
Is there a reason why boise1 is not being properly automounted after reboot? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!
RPC: Can't bind to reserved port (98).
RPC: can't bind to reserved port.
RPC: error 5 connecting to server boise1
nfs_get_root: getattr error = 5
nfs_read_super: get root inode failed
After the amq -uf /net/boise1 command, I can run mount | grep boise1, and I get this:
boise1:/ on /.automount/net/boise1 type nfs (nounmount,vers=3,proto=tcp) boise1:/local on /.automount/net/boise1/local type nfs (nounmount,vers=3,proto=tcp)
