UNIX advice needed desperately :/

Firstly I do need to state that I am turning here as a last resort. Im in my first year of a Computer Networking and technical support course, and as a first year I must complete a Introductory Unix/Linux class. I have been doing well in the course so far however I have been stumped on the final assignment (due this friday). It is confusing - as a beginner. Im hoping someone here can possibly help me out, I need to understand this for the exam next week. Any help you guys can offer is appreciated, I will post my stuff thus far in a second. Thanks in advance, setaylor5
