Description of problem:
Chapter 9. Network File System - has inaccurate information

Chapter 9.1 Paragraph 1
- Kerberos Security is not just an NFSv4 feature. Kerberos
  can be used with all version of NFS.

- RHEL4 uses NFS version 3 by default not version 4.

Chapter 9.1 Paragraph 4
- "Kerberos user and group authentication with various security levels
is optionally available"
   really does not make much sense and again, krb5 auth is done by RPC
not NFS
   so its available from all versions.

Chapter 9.1 1st Warning box
- Is not true and should be removed.

Chapter 9.1.1 rpc.svcgssd and rpc.gssd descriptions
- Should say something like:
    rpc.svcgssd - This process is used by the NFS server to do
    user authentication and is only started when SECURE_NFS=yes
    in /etc/sysconfig/nfs

rpc.gssd - This process is used by the NFS client to do
    user authentication and is only started when SECURE_NFS=yes
    in /etc/sysconfig/nfs
