To use PC-NFS you must have a PC with direct Internet access, and you must purchase and install PC-NFS. For further information, contact:
Install and configure PC-NFS as described in the installation manual.
Your file c:\nfs\hosts must include the Internet IP numbers of the host computers where the CD-ROMs are mounted. Any future changes in those IP numbers will be reflected in this WWW file.
The contents and NFS locations of the CD-ROM diskettes are subject to frequent change.
In addition, the NFS location
of the CD-ROM menu system is subject to change. Its current location is included in the document you are now reading.
To mount (for example) disk1, disk73, and disk181, type the following:
Note: the following NFS locations are no longer current. For present locations, consult NFS locations of CDROMs.
net use g: /d net use g: parep2.lbl.gov:/export/cdrom/cd037 net use h: /d net use h: sdp2.berkeley.edu:/disk73 net use i: /d net use i: bigsur.lbl.gov:/export/cdrom/cd043
Then you can access those three CD-ROM diskettes as MS-DOS drives g: and h: and i:
The same mechanism is used to mount the NFS file system which contains the CD-ROM menu system:
net use e: /d net use f: /d net use e: cedr.lbl.gov:/data9/old/parep2/menu
Drive f: is reserved for use by the CD-ROM menu system.
PC-NFS can be configured (with nfsconf ) to cause selected NFS file systems to be automatically mounted on selected drives, each time the PC is rebooted. The NFS mount locations are stored in your file c:\nfs\drives.bat.
Your file c:\nfs\drives.bat must be modified (and the CD-ROMs remounted) whenever the NFS locations at the University of California are changed.
Please inform Deane Merrill (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you wish to be notified additionally by electronic mail, of changes in NFS locations.
