I am glad you found it. The GUI is usually easier for a new user to
manage. You can also do it from the command line. But I worry about
making a typo when I giving the command to someone else. I would
hate to leave them with an unbootable system. (If I break my system,
I know I can fix it...)

I hope that does not mean doing a reinstall - you should not need to
do that. I think that learning by doing is the best way to learn.
