INTRO(8) System Administration INTRO(8)
intro - introduction to system administration
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.
