I am using Solaris 2.5 x86 and do not have enough space
in my /usr/dt directory to load CDE. The error message says to load it in another place and create a symbolic link to
/usr/dt. Exactly how do I do this? Please include syntax.

 Hi...at the beginning of the installation it will ask you which directory you want to install CDE into.  Choose a filesystem that has enough space and install it.  Then once it is done installing, create the symlink by typing:  ln -s "source path" "link path".  Do this for all the files that need a symlink in /usr/dt.  Talk to you soon...Adam
