Not what I was hoping to hear. :-)
(But thanks for your quick response!
I'll have a look but, being entirely ignorant of Macs, I probably
shd. ask another question:
Is there F/S that Mac and Linux have in common that supports
symlinking? I have the ntfs-3g stuff installed on this F8 machine,
but I don't know if (i) Mac speaks it and (ii) it supports symlinks.
I can find out for myself if (ii) is true, but I don't
have access to a Mac to find out (i).
