2.1 Setting Up to Use Kerberos V5

Your system administrator will have installed the Kerberos V5 programs in whichever directory makes the most sense for your system. We will use /usr/local throughout this guide to refer to the top-level directory Kerberos V5 directory. We will therefor use /usr/local/bin to denote the location of the Kerberos V5 user programs. In your installation, the directory name may be different, but whatever the directory name is, you should make sure it is included in your path. You will probably want to put it ahead of the directories /bin and /usr/bin so you will get the Kerberos V5 network programs, rather than the standard UNIX versions, when you type their command names.
