How about the 03x path names?

In the 03x series you should not use the full path unless it is absolutely neccessary.

The reason for this is that there are shortcut symlinks to the same directory. Such as

/rc/rc_user
/boot/rc/rc_user
/mnt/bootdev/router/rc/rc_user

Are all the same file, same location. This also pertains to

/pkg
/boot/pkg
/mnt/bootdev/router/pkg

However, with the pkg directory they are not always the same place. If a ramdrive package is install then /pkg => /mnt/ram1/pkg and not /mnt/bootdev/router/pkg
So if the full path is given it will not work in some cases, because of the change in the actual location. The reason for the shortcuts is to enable this flexibilty. So all references should always be to the shortest path, which keeps everything working in all configurations.

Comment of Office 2010 (2011-08-01 04:36:50):
Since this is a three Office 2010 user disc I tried to install Microsoft Office 2010 on an old laptop. That Outlook 2010 computer had Office 2007 Office 2003 running on it. The Microsoft outlook 2010 computer ran the Microsoft Office 2007 install program and I tried to upgrade Microsoft Office since it only gives you two choices, Office 2010 key upgrade and custom. It seemed to work but after sometime I got a setup failed Office 2010 professional message and Microsoft outlook is no longer on the MS Office 2007 programs list. When I run the Office 2010 download disc it advises me to repair or remove Office 2007 Professional Office 2003.
