Symbolic links for bash and sh

Just got a recent book 20020818

Section "Creating the /bin/sh symlink"

You have

ln -s /static/bin/bash /bin/sh

Just to let you know that I really hate this, and I have

cd /bin
ln -s  /static/bin/bash  bash
ln -s bash  sh

This seems more logical, and there is no need to delete anything
later, and both sh and bash are correct.    The dynamic bash will
replace the symbolic link, and everything is set up.
