Computer System Accounting

How do I enable System Accounting on Solaris 8? In Solaris 7 I would copy the /usr/lib/acct file to S22acct and start it like that. That doesn't seem to be an option in Solaris 8.

Thanks for your help!

To enable the SAR subsystem to function on solaris, you need to enable
its daemons and data collectors.
cd to /etc/init.d
vi perf, and remove the comments
cd /etc/rc2.d or some other directory that is used for your run-level startup, and see that there is a file that is linked to /etc/init.d/perf.
Mine was /etc/rc2.d/S21perf.
run that file, to be sure all is ok, so "/etc/rc2.d/S21perf start"
run the "sar -A" command, to be sure it is working.
crontab -e sys ----> to uncomment the lines for sar.
Thats it !!!

some accounting courses

Hi dear, I am taking some accounting courses at my school. I just am wondering if I could get help with my choice of Accounting. I know Accounting is a great career but what can I really get from majoring in Accounting and possibly working in this field. What are well-paid jobs I can apply to after school? Also which schools are the best for accounting both in undergrad and grad so that I can start researching them and apply to them next year?
