Under I pasted the part I believe contains some mistakes? http://linuxzoo.net/page/wildcards_links_soft.html

Again, let us assume that the current working directory is /home/john and we wish to create a link 'softfile2' within the subdirectory projects to the file 'softfile'. Notice the '-s' switch:

% date > softfile ( create the file )

% ls -l
-rwx-xr-x 1 john users 605 Nov 18 12:25 softfile

% ln -s /home/john/softfile project/softfile2
Should be: % ln -s /home/john/softfile projects/softfile2

% ls -l projects/softfile2
lrwx-xr-x 1 john users 605 Nov 18 12:25 softfile2 ->
/home/staff/john/softfile
Should be: lrwx-xr-x 1 john users 605 Nov 18 12:25 softfile2 ->
/home/john/softfile

Cheers,
Dave
