Linking Files in UNIX (shortcuts)


Can anyone tell me how I can make a file link or shortcut in UNIX 4.0, several
file links where damaged during an outage examples below.

Examples: file -> file -> /usr/shlib/

All of the file links that were damaged were in /shlib and point to /usr/shlib

# 2  
Chack the man pages for "ln" command
# 3  
I received the following error message after attempting this.

ln -f /usr/shlib/

Error Message:
ln: and /usr/shlib/ are located on different file systems.

Anyones help is greatly appreciated.

# 4  
This was my mistake I should have used -fs ... not -f, NOT GOOD.

Thanks to all.
