Just because you said "absolute rookie" , I'll add to Ugenn's post that you should go to System Tools, Terminal, then sign in as superuser (root) by typing 'su' (without the ' '). Once you have typed your password, you'll be logged in as root. Then you can type (or copy and paste) Ugenn's command and you'll have the info.
