We know that.

Please type:

ls -l

(small letter Ls)

in your terminal.

Post the output here.

ll means ls -l on most, BUT NOT ALL distros.

I am doing this in KONSOLE, which says "bash" on the top of it. Is this the proper place to enter these commands?

Konsole, etc. are just GUI interfaces for the BASH shell.

Why would you want to run a Linux server in Windows?

It's not a Linux server then!

Just to begin getting experience with server stuff in Linux. That is the reason I am doing all of this.

I have roughly 23 days to learn what I need so I can at least setup a file server for our business, which will be accessed from Windows 7 workstations. In the future, I will need to setup a web server, but first things first.

Sorry about missing posts. They keep going up or to new pages, so I miss them. I guess only new posts appear way down here on my page. I am not much of a chat/text guy.
