thanks to all who contributed....there are too many answers to include all here
but if you want I'll email you the email folder I created with all the
answers....basically the answers fell into one of four "categories".
1. you can't do this
2. tar the file up from the directory in which it sits, i.e.
a) cd /somedir
b) tar cvf somefile.tar somefile
c) cd /someotherdir
d) tar xvf somefile.tar
**I NEGLECTED to mention I inherited this file--so I could't do this...but
thanks for helping mi avoed futre mistekes....
3. get gnu (in progress-sort of)
4. several suggestions about renaming existing directories and creating
new ones or overlaying directories with other directories etc....
Here's the thank-you list...if you're not here, sorry I missed you but thanks
