My problem is that i have install in /static/bin. can I copy it to /usr/bin/ ? Since I get an error as message as follows
> /usr/bin/install: no such file or directory.

The point is, it's *supposed* to be /static/bin/install. The fact that
it's looking for it in /usr/bin means that you did something wrong
somewhere in chapter 5. Simply copying the file to /usr/bin might fix
it, but there might be something else that's broken, too.

Without more details, I can only suggest that you start the book over
and follow all of the instructions to the letter. Of course, if you know
where you went wrong in chapter 5, just go back to that part and do it
again, and you should be ok.
