Thanks a lot for your reply. It works the way you have mentioned. However, I wanted to do it using command line as opposed to the GUI, so that I could learn some of the linux/Unix commands. One of the reasons I am switching from WIndows to linux is to learn the linux/Unix commands.
In today's world where everything needs to be working just "right" for someone to switch over to something else, I appreciate someone actually taking time to learn something that takes time and patience.
I've read many stories about how people don't like to migrate from windows because they just dont want to learn the commands or things don't work right away before doing some basic tweaking. I find in linux if you take just one step to learn to work with the system, there are a whole lot of things you can do that would be unimaginable in windows (because everything is locked).
So thank you for wanting to learn to actually use linux and see what's under the GUI (not that I'm saying negative about the linux GUI, I do think it is a great improvement from even a couple of years ago, I couldn't stand Gnome 1 and KDE 1 was Windows 95 compared to what's coming in KDE4).
