Red Hat9 permissions in Terminal


Hello,


Thanks to this site I've made leaps and bounds.........but in the terminal as root I use /etc/inittab....and it tells me permission denied .
Being somewhat new to linux this is a little confusing .

What do you mean by "use" /etc/inittab. inittab is a configuration file. All you can do with it is read it or edit it. You certainly can't execute it, that wouldn't make any sense.
