In general, we have tried to stay away from unix tutorials in the apache 
docs.  We need to document Apache, not the operating system.  If we try 
to be all things to all people, we will wind up with crappy docs.

Now, if we could find a good general unix-permissions tutorial on the 
web, then there would be nothing wrong with providing a strategic link.
