	You already have them; use the C shell and enter this in your .cshrc:

	alias	md	mkdir
	alias	chdir	cd
	alias	rename	mv
	alias	ren	mv
	alias	erase	rm -i
	alias	rd	rmdir

	and for good measure:

	alias	cls	clear
	alias	ver	uname -sr
	alias	type	cat

	okay, okay .. you get the idea.

	SunOS 4.1.1 includes a new filesystem type: pcfs.
	Toss your DOS floppy into the drive and then "cd /pcfs" (assuming
	/pcfs has been mounted as shown in the /etc/fstab file).
