Thanks for the help. I read the printing file and found it useful. Some of the commands do not work on my system but enough do. I printed the sources.list as I wanted to do since I changed it. From the Terminal session. It uses /bin/bash by the way.

Firerat command line is easy when you know not when you don't. The man pages are good also when you kinda know not when you don't know at all. My memories of how to do this are over 20 years old. I was not very good then or I probably would have continued Linux then. I moved to a remote location where there was no one else to even talk Linux to. All computing was windoz at the new job. I used Mandrake and RedHat7 then and still have the install disks in the back of the CD holder. I did not even try them though. Too much hardware change since then. Hard drives were still in Mega bits then. I only recently got rid of the old tower case I used back then. It was a short ATX tower with a suit case handle on top to make it easier to carry it around to the install fests and classes.
