If you want to write them in the terminal, you can use vi (which is a bit difficult at first) or nano (which is quite similar to the DOS editor). But you can also use Kate, KEdit, KWrite or Emacs or another text editor of your choice.

Redhat uses Gnome by default. The default text editor is gedit.
In your GUI menu, there should be an entry for "Text Editor".

You can of course install any editor you want.
