    I did more than cleaning it up, I also integrated my own experience with the installation of this card and the information from this forum thread: http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=296822 (great job from phq by the way!)

    I just did a cleanup.

    There was an old page called BasicCommands.

    Someone created a new page called HowToUseTheTerminal, and whoever created BasicCommands thought the information was redundant and should be merged. Of course, since BasicCommands is a subset of HowToUseTheTerminal (the commands go in the terminal, not vice versa), it would make sense to put stuff in the latter page.

    But HowToUseTheTerminal is also an annoying URL to type (see how many times you have to press the Shift key).

    So I merged them and moved them to a new page: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal

    Hope no one complains.

    Change the text

    The mouse won't work. Use the Left/Right arrow keys to move around the line.

    When the cursor is where you want it in the line, typing inserts text - ie it doesn't overtype what's already there.
    ctrl+a or Home
    Moves the cursor to the start of a line.

    ctrl+e or End
    Moves the cursor to the end of a line.

    ctrl+b
    Moves to the beginning of the previous or current word.

    ctrl+k
    Deletes from the current cursor position to the end of the line.

    ctrl+u
    Deletes the whole of the current line.

    ctrl+w
    Deletes the word before the cursor.
    I didn't know that! That's really helpful.

    I've merged a bunch of threads about the documentation (usually specifically the Wiki). I don't know how it ended up with an empty poll at the top, but I've attached a screenshot of the real poll that got lost in the mix.
