Hello!

I want to read and edit e.g. .bash file. Gave the command su
and got a super user previleges but I could not se the files
beginning with a point (.). This happens in Fedora 9. In Fedora 6
this worked out full. Some ideas what I do wrong?

Try typing in "ls -a" (man ls for all the options). If you want to edit it, typing in "vi .bashrc" works just fine.
