I have an LPP that I want to install on all my AIX machines (for
example the "perl" freeware), but I want to minimize the disk-space
used on the network of machines. Can I selectively mount part of /usr
on another machine?

In general it is not possible to share an LPP with several machines.
Sometimes it is possible to use a dedicated filesystem to install
freeware which can then be shared.

However for anything packaged as an LPP it is possible to use
a script that replaces /usr/sbin/inurest, and that redirects files
delivered by the LPP to the shared disk.

One script that does this is called Ninstallp, and it is available
(with instructions) from
http://www.geocities.com/ResearchTriangle/5428/ninstallp.html
