Whats '%' doing? Well, host and bunzip2 are no way related here!

"host%" is not a valid command... why are you typing it?

ahhh... i see... no that just represents your command prompt.... just start at "bunzip2"

Aah! That was one confusing thing! Edit your /root/.bashrc file by putting a line
Code:
export PS1="Saritha"
If the line already exists, replace it.

no, ignore that... leave your bashrc untouched. the OP just copied too much literally from the webpage...
