You will go to a black window with a blinking cursor. There you can type the suggested commands.
cat is a command that wil give you an onscreen listing, depending on what you have asked for. After the word "cat" comes a space and than your arguments.
so: cat /proc/version
will show you on screen the content of a file called "version" which is to be found in the folder "proc"
Hope this clarifies a little bit for you.
If the shortcut does not work you have to go through the applications menu and search for a "program" called "terminal" or "konsole". This will open the window you need. You can compare this window with the old DOS-window in Windows XP, if that's of any help.
