Hi Matt,

thank you for the help. One question, I ran the back up script, and it 
did nothing in the actual terminal, does it put a file somewhere so I 
can go look for it?

Then when I ran the second sript this happened.....

jakewc2 at jakewc2-laptop:~$ sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list 
/etc/apt/sources.list.backup
[sudo] password for jakewc2:
jakewc2 at jakewc2-laptop:~$ sudo
usage: sudo -h | -K | -k | -L | -l | -V | -v
usage: sudo [-bEHPS] [-p prompt] [-u username|#uid] [VAR=value]
            {-i | -s | <command>}
usage: sudo -e [-S] [-p prompt] [-u username|#uid] file ...
jakewc2 at jakewc2-laptop:~$ gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

That is everything that happened with the two commands. I think I just 
have to press enter for the second command to something ele, but wanted 
to make sure that wa ok forst.

John
