RHEL 8, RH124, Chapter 3, Section 5 inconsistencies

RHEL 8, RH124, Chapter 3, Section 5 - There are a few inconsistencies with this section, which cause issues if a student is following along with the commands in their own terminal.

Remember: the we're dealing with students who are completely new to Linux. Even the very first sentence in the course says, "Red Hat System Administration I (RH124) is designed for IT professionals without previous Linux system administration experience."

1) This sequence is "broken". It jumps from the Documents directory to ~ back to the Documents directory without instructing the student to change directories.

If they do not change directories, when the Documents directory should show as being empty in a later step, the hostname file will show up (when it shouldn't).

2) The thesis_chapter2.odf file is not copied into the ProjectX/Thesis/Chapter2 directory at any time. Even so, it shows up as being in the directory here:

and again when performing a recursive listing:

and again when removing files interactively - it asks to remove it, even though it doesn't exist in the directory.
