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.

I'll hazard a guess and say that pen-drive is formatted w/ either
FAT or NFTS. Neither of which have facilities for links. If you
want symlinks you may have to format the pen w/ a Linux native
file-system like ext2/3/4, reiserfs, xfs, jfs, ...
thanks for helping me to solve pen drive problem. finaaly i am able to resolve the pen drive's problem.
Now i am having problem with sshd server.
i try to install sshd server on hardware board which is mips64.
i successfully install sshd server,now sshd server is running.i am able to remote login with sshd user but not with root user.

Please mark this thread as [Solved] if you're happy. Do not start a different topic. You will get no answers because you're question has nothing to do with the thread title. Please start your new thread (about the sshd server) with a good title and then you can get help.
