I got MANY responses back (Chris you weren't alone in your opinion) saying
that _Panic_ is still a very applicable text on the subject. Many people
also directed me to a shell script called iscda available from sun's web
site. One person mentioned a text called _The Magic Garden Explained_ as
being a very good book on SVR4 internals. I bought _Panic and now have
some reading to do. Thanks very much to all who replied!
