ok, well I wanted to avoid that if all possible anyway, tried this ln -s
/var/www/download /home/steve/public_html but when I try to copy a file
into /var/www/download I get no space left on device. thats creating a
symbolic link from download directory (which has no space left) to a
directory that has 280 gig free in it. did I do something incorrectly?
