I need to copy some of the daemon files from root in fedora 13 to a USB flash drive before I make changes to them. I am taking a Linux certification class and need to know also how to restore those files if I can not get the fedora 13 OS to reboot after I have made the changes I must make in the class assignment. Can someone point me in the right direction to find the information I need? I would really appreciate it very much.

That and Fedora 13 is beyond end of life. If you need support you should update your version of Fedora or use a supported version of RHEL/Scientific/Centos.

You don't really need the flash drive. Simply make copies, in situ, of the files before you change them.

If your system doesn't boot after the changes, you will need to use rescue mode on the installation DVD and reinstate the modified files.
