Description Edward J. Huff 2001-11-11 10:14:13 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.9-7 i586)

Description of problem:
The gsg says:

Now, open a terminal by clicking on the Terminal Emulation Program button
on the panel at the bottom of your desktop. Type the following at the
command line: 

 cd su

Now press [Enter]. You will be asked for your root password. Enter the
password at the command line and press [Enter]. You are now logged in as
root.

Obviously, "cd su" is wrong.
bash: cd: su: No such file or directory

Probably it needs to be 
su -
... You are now logged in as root.  The prompt is #.

Type 
# cd /cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/
...

Do you really want to tell a complete novice to get a root shell prompt?

Type nott s/b not:

RH-DOCS/rhl-gsg-en-7.2/ch-basics.html
There is one component of your new operating system you can nott do without: the
shell.
