    book version 6.0 chapter 5.29. After installing bash3.0 the following command is issued:
ln -s bash /tools/bin/sh
but immediately after this the bash-3.0 directory is removed! What's the point in 
this symlink.? As I understand, it creates a link called '/tools/bin/sh' that points
to bash in the current directory which is subsequently removed. After the bash 
directory is removed, what does the link point to?
