Creating Symbolic Links from File to File

"How do I create links from file to file? For example, I want to have an index.html file automatically point to my home.htm file."

This is accomplished in UNIX by using the ln command. To create a link "fileA.html" to "fileB.html", type the following at a Telnet/SSH prompt:

    ln -s [fileB.html] [fileA.html]

In your example, type:

    ln -s home.htm index.html

To find out more about the ln command or any other UNIX commands see the manual page on it at BSD (search for "ln" in this example).
