(AFAIK - The USB topic is waiting on more info from you)

Basic command line tools:

"ls" list the contents of a directory (defaults to the current, but a different directory can be specified after the command)

"cd /home/user/directory" cd chamges the current (working) directory. In this case, it changes it to /home/user/directory

"su -" gets root access ("su" normally works, but some ditros need the "-" too in order to give you full root access)

"unlink filename" deletes a file

"rm -Rf directory" removes a directory and all its subdirectories & contents without prompting

For more ifno on any command, just type "man command_name" to view the built-in system manual entry
