full access to redhat



I just installed my RedHat Enterprise Linux 5 on vmwork to learn exploit it.
my first problem (for now) is that i cant received response from some command typed on (open terminal)


code :


[root@dhcppc1 ~]# /etc/redhat-releasebash: /etc/redhat-release: Permission denied
[root@dhcppc1 ~]# /etc/redhat-releasebash: /etc/redhat-release: Permission denied

I think the account used; is not for full access!!, t
but I use the famous ROOT login!

should modify something?if yes,who?
should create another account,if yes,who?

thank you please to specify in detail the process to follow in order to have the inftead message: PERMISSION DENIED!

Thank you for your speedy return.

Waiting to hear from you

perhaps you should familiarize yourself with the "file" command.

as stated above, this is not an executable file, it is an "ASCII text" file.

My advice to you would be familiarise yourself with a shell and general Linux concepts.

Your post makes me think you are new to Linux with your comment:
but I use the famous ROOT login!
so start with the basics, try doing things with a non root user to prevent yourself from damaging the system, and once you are more comfortable with how it all works then use root and do more delving into the OS and Kernel.

100% Inode full with only 67% FS full.

AIX Version 6.1 and 7.1. I understand that when the OS initially creates the FS and inodes, its pretty strict, but not always tuned to a 1:1 ratio.
