Hi Bruce,

You are right, I should have been more specific.
Differences exist in each distro. I was refering to
the commands that the end User would (most likely) be
using to install her company's software (i.e. mount,
umount, mkdir, cd, ls, rm, tar, etc. as well as rpm
-ivh (if Mandrake, Red Hat or SuSe).
