Help! Can anyone help this newbie.

I have been trying to use bash terminal on my SL-5500 with the sharp 3.13 rom. Every time I try to copy anything all I get is permission denied. Can anyone help me?

PLEASE........

i.e. if I try to copy a file using terminal with the command cp /usr/bin/???? etc all I get is unable to copy, permission denied.

I am a total newbie to the linux platform.

What are you trying to copy?

You need to be root to copy to /usr/bin for example.

Use 'su -' to become root, but be careful what you do.

You might want to get the sudo package (sudo makes you a super user for just one command). Then you can write:

sudo cp X /usr/bin
