very true, but in the event that you have lost or some other
crucial shared bobbin (yes, i did this once -- please let's not go
into the how and why of it), you can use these tools to get it back.

chmod would be very good there, as would mknod (as previously noted),
and mkdir.  after all, what good does it do you to be able to copy
something from somewhere if you can't make the directory it needs to
live in and reset the permissions to what they need to be.

i hate booting from cds.
