Hmm, I did not make any links, so assume that setup.exe
did this:

lrwxrwxrwx    1 Administ       15 May 22 17:53 /usr/bin/egrep -> grep

..and that there must be a good reason why hard links are
not the default for such things.  Will give this a try when I
get a chance to read up on what "links" mean under WIN2000...
