Good place for system binaries?

Post by Andrew Turnqui » Sat, 18 Mar 1995 08:34:57

I've been moving a lot of system binaries (mount/umount/swapon/etc...)
in to /sbin to get them out of /etc and /bin.  Having printed the alpha
System Administrator's Guide, I read that /sbin is usually used for
staticly linked binaries.  So, I was wondering what would be a good
place to put system binaries to keep them seperate from the regular user
commands and such?

On a related topic, where would I find the Linux FSSTD, which might
answer this question?

Thanks in advance,
