Ok so there is a list of the cammands you have 
available through a ROOT account on a XENIX. 
XENIX is sorta a scaled down sub-version of 
UNIX.  So when hacking it use unix hacking 

Well I know this is a little cut and dry but
thats the way it goes....I hope it was helpful.
Now when you get in you will know what to do.

A book a ripped off the computer lab call:

Thanks to P-80 for the great service they do 
all of us.   Thanks a million Scan Man.....
