    Hi,

    Can someone offer me some assistance with creating symlinks. This links to my other thread:

    http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10623

    Basically I want to create a symlink to another directory using an entry placed in the users .bashrc file. So far I tried to add:

    ln -s /home/ftp/

    But when I logon using FTP there is no link. Am I barking up the wrong tree.

    With
    Code:
    # man ln
    you will get an explanation (manual pages) of the syntax of this command (ln [OPTION]... TARGET... DIRECTORY). To do what you described:
    Code:
    ln -s somefilename /home/ftp
