This is a newbie question.  I'm trying to create my .plan and .signature files.  I'm using the command cat > .plan
The system tells me it cannot create the file.  How do I
create these files? Let me know if you need more information.

   Hello...cat would be used for displaying the contents of a file...if you want to create a .plan file from scratch an easy way to do it is use a text editor (using vi: vi .plan   using pico:  pico .plan  etc.)  then write it and save...another way would be to use echo if it was a short plan (echo Contents_Here > .plan) if .plan already exists using echo and redirecting output like this won't work until you delete the existing .plan

cat > .plan
should work unless the file or directory was protected,
in which case the other methods may have the same problem.
Are you in the right directory when you invoke that command?
does
ls -l .plan .signature
show anything?
