Hey, that never worked for me, so I managed to edit the .sh file using some other online server. here is that file I used rmemeber to rename it to .sh

I just skimmed over this thread, but I am sure he just means create a new file like

Then in that paste the contents of what he wrote into that.

Also if for whatever reason you can't transfer the file over, you could type it all out(oh lawdy)
by doing
vi hellolinux.sh

Then write it in there. (I assume you have used vi before? If not eh)
