Default Simple Terminal question from a noob - 11-26-2012, 07:13 AM

I'm using this guide (h++p:// but I got stuck at the boot screen - it won't let me log in, just keeps puching me back out to the log in screen - so now I'm trying to perform step 14 in Terminal by booting to the Snow Leopard disc (via USB stick). Problem is, I suck at Terminal and don't really know the commands. It says "bash:" and I type in the commands:
  • sudo mv /mach_kernel /mach_kernel_old
  • sudo mv /legacy_kernel-10.6.8 /mach_kernel
  • sudo chown root:wheel /mach_kernel
but it doesn't work, I think because of the whole "bash:" thing. Maybe I have to do something like "sudo cp..." or something, I don't really know.

Can anyone help me to get these commands to work in Terminal by booting to the OSX disc?
