  Ok I created the symbolic links to the target as you directed and now I'm
getting a 403 Forbidden error. I guess this is progress but I don't know in
which direction. Here is a copy of my /openils/var/web/xul/ directory long

drw-r-xr-x 2 root    root    4096 Feb 25 17:48 123
drwxr-xr-x 3 opensrf opensrf 4096 Feb 25 17:42 20080225.174225
drwxr-xr-x 2 root    root    4096 Feb 25 17:50 rel_1.2.1.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root    root      15 Feb 25 19:20 rel_1_2_1_0 ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root    root      15 Feb 25 19:23 rel_1_2_1_3 ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root    root      15 Feb 25 19:19 rel_1_2_1_4 ->
I will be removing the links that don't work which are the rel_1_2_1_4 and
the rel_1_2_1_0 links. Those were shown in red and the rel_1_2_1_3 was shown
in light green so I'm assuming that the red ones are dead links. It's been a
while since I've worked with symbolic links. I think this is a step in the
right direction but I can't figure out why I'm getting a forbidden error if
the link is 777. Any ideas?
