jeff, that guru out there in rochester, has a program called sudo
(see that groovy signature line -- cool :-)

lacking the program you could just 'switch user'  or su to root
then set up, create, the command jeff described
ln -s /lib/ /lib/
then get out of root
and run that program

i can't help anymore beyond that -- i thought i could help translate though

good luck
