    Hello good hearted linux folks:

    Due to hard drive crash or something, I lost all my windows systems
    and the data and not able to reinstall again with dual booting with
    linux.

    However, I have in my computer on linux redhat 9 installed and I would
    like to do everything I was doing in windows, word processing, some
    programming etc.....etc...play games chat...

    I purchased a book (Redhat 9 linux unleashed) and following the book
    in learning...linux...but i'm so overwhelmed ..i'm progressing very
    fast...e.g; in the book while writing scripts it uses e.g; (sign)$,
    sometimes it
    uses (sign) #useradd cindy, what exactly is the difference between $
    and # prompt. Of course reading a book is easier than doing the actual
    coding..By the way, i installed my redhat linux 9 from the book
    itself.

    I am not able to go root directory and neither i'm able to add userid
    since it says u don't have something....

    Is it possible to chat in messanger or talk in phone with some one
    who can guide me in these titty bitty thing in linux....

    thanks in advance!

    Only root can access the root directory.
    The message is just saying that you don't have permission to
    access it.
