Creating a Linux VM in the AWS Cloud

The AWS website contains various tutorials for setting up systems in the AWS cloud.  Complete Steps 1-4 in the following tutorial: Launch a Linux Virtual Machine.  Steps 1-4 show you how to create a Linux instance in a virtual machine and log into it via Terminal or the Git terminal.

Please do not perform Step 5.  Step 5 shows you how to terminate the Linux instance.  Note that when you terminate an instance, you delete the instance.  We don’t want to delete the instance.  We’ll keep the instance running for the entire semester.

If you run into problems, please let me know.
