Default fedora vs freebsd file locations


I am following a tutorial for securing Apache2 but the tutorial is FreeBSD 5.1 based and I am using Fedora Core 5. The problem is I cant find the following files to complete the tutorial (Extracted from tutorial on securityfocus.com)

cp /usr/libexec/ld-elf.so.1 /chroot/httpd/usr/libexec/
cp /var/run/ld-elf.so.hints /chroot/httpd/var/run/
cp /etc/master.passwd /chroot/httpd/etc/passwords

Any help on this would be HUGELY appreciated.



PS: Yes I am very new to *nix, the apache server is my forced way to learn it.

Not sure if you know, but cp stands for copy.

the line: cp /usr/libexec/ld-elf.so.1 /chroot/httpd/usr/libexec/
is sayin copy the "/usr/libexec/lib-elf.so.1" file to "/chroot/httpd/usr/libexec/"

What directory / file can you not find?

You can do a updatedb, and than search lib-elf.so.1 to find the lib-elf.so.1 file and adjust the "/usr/libexec/" path to it..

You will need to do the same for the other files.

Good luck,

PS. I'm also new to linux..

I don't think it's a good idea to use a FreeBSD tutorial on a Linux system, because libraries and files are different. For example, /etc/master.passwd on FreeBSD is /etc/shadow on Linux (if I remember correctly).
