NAME

       intro - introduction to system administration


DESCRIPTION

       The  commands  described  in  this chapter are intended only for system
       administration tasks.  On traditional Unix systems, use of  these  rou-
       tines are typically restricted to the superuser (root).

       System  administration  commands  are  usually  kept  in  either /sbin,
       /usr/sbin, or /etc.  Because of the lack of user file permissions under
       GNO,  it  is  often possible for non-privaledged users to execute these
       commands.  Therefore, in the interest of system integrity, these direc-
       tories  should not be in the PATH of any user other than the superuser.

       The manual page syntax of this chapter conforms to that of  Chapter  1,
       Commands and Applications.
