Hi,

 

I am trying to install a software called Fullprof suite. Upon downloading, I have to follow the directions listed here:

 

http://www.ill.eu/sites/fullprof/php/downloads.html

 

I'm supposed to use the sudo command in terminal, which may lead to data loss. I'm pretty new to this sort of thing, so I would like to confirm that the text I am entering is safe, and only allows installation of the program:

 

sudo ln -s /Applications/Darwin/openmotif-2.2.3-universal /usr/OpenMotif

 

I am running on MacBook (2008), 10.5.8.

 

Any help would be appreciated. I tried running this program on our pc and now that computer doesn't start....


Mac OS X (10.5), 13.3" Aluminum
