    I am trying to write a basic hello_world.c program in the ipod's terminal using the nano text editor. When i try to save it denies me permission to write. Do I have to go into OpenSSH and add permission to the terminal? And if so where is the terminal located. Thanks -Al

    sudo doesn't work i think


    enter in "su root"
    enter pass: "alpine"

    Alright Thanks! That worked great, now I made a few errors in my nano file. On my laptop i would use my arrow keys to navigate to where i wanted to change the text. How do i do the equivalent in the Mobile Terminal?
