hi all,

am now into Chapter 7.7 - Creating the /etc/inputrc file, am very
confused here,what am i supposed to is the Paragraph,

To create the .inputrc in /etc/skel using the command below, change
the command's output to /etc/skel/.inputrc and be sure to check/set
permissions afterward. Copy that file to /etc/inputrc and the home
directory of any user already existing on the system, including root,
that needs a private version of the file. Be certain to use the -p
parameter of cp to maintain permissions and be sure to change owner
and group appropriately.

what would be the commands for these?...
i would be happy if anyone could help me out.....
thanks in advance........

with regards,
