Default Hard Links

This should be an easy one for anybody who's used Linux for any decent amount of time.

Hard Links: How do you create and modify them?

Basically, I just installed the latest version of mozilla (the one that came with Redhat 7.3 apparently has a bug where cookies don't work properly), and I'd like to change the current link in /usr/bin to point to the newly-installed version.

You can use the "ln" command. Sorry for the vague response - I always refer to the man page for the specifics to get the job done since I don't use it very often...

Hmmm...now I would like to do another basic Linux thing. I'd like to know how to write a script to load at startup.
