    You open a terminal such as Bash or Sh (there are plenty of others). If you are using KDE try Alt + F2. Then type 'Bash' in the dialogue box. I think its F2 anyway

    No problem. Also check out the tutorials section of this forum and read the command line tutorial. That way you can learn to list files:

    ls -l

    Remove them: rm -i myfiles

    and other useful stuff. :o

    You can run the command line when x is running in a terminal shell. If X is not running then command line text mode is all you have anyway.
