Hope I did not forget anyone...

Several people mentioned about a console server and a boot server.

I had both, but never thought about booting from the boot server.
I have only ever used it for jumpstarts, and it never occurred to
me to boot off that server (would have saved the drive in!)

Others mentioned about /usr/sbin/static/...

I could have just done /oldusr/sbin/static/mv /mnt /usr and rebooted!
or /oldusr/sbin/static/cp -pr /mnt /usr ...

Some mentioned about the LD_LIBRARY_PATH...I had tried all of that and it
did not work.

I'm sure the above will work for me (if there is ever a next time)!

Also, someone mentioned to compile the GNU version of mkdir (static)
, but the static cp or mv already on the system should do the trick!

BTW: this was Solaris 2.5.1 (forgot to mention it in the first email).

Thanks again GURU's...
