Anyone know of a good site that explains and shows you how to set up symlinks?

thanks
jason


also - what file can you put a path in to get a app/script/etc to run on boot?

well there's really nothign to it, just use

man ln

for all the info you'd need.

a general symlink is:

ln -s /location/of/original [/dest/in/ation]

boot file.. /etc/rc.local on most distros. i'm pretty sure that is the last standard script executed no a boot, so everythign should be running by then.
