    remember the how-to is made for centos, so not all commands will work .. you need to change them for your ditro. if you run ubuntu, you can't use yum, use apt-get

    so you would get: apt-get install nail

    but i can see it's already installed. so you can continue the how-to

    i kinda had that fealing and did an apt-get for it, but when i run
    nail -s “Keys" -a keys.zip [email protected]

    substituting the [email protected] for my values it just sits their and the terminal will not allow me to execute anymore commands
