SSH - HELP!!!!  
Okay, so I am changing everything over to my new host, Dreamhost.  I am currently importing all of the tables in my databases, but one of my tables is FAR too big to be imported through PHP Admin.

I have shell access to the host.  I have never used this before, but I get the idea because I use Telnet at work, which I know is around the same concept.  Well, I found out that Telnet and Dreamhost don't get along, so I need to figure out how to access SSH.

HOW THE HELL DO I GET ACCESS TO SSH?????  It seriously cannot be this hard!!!!

I got something called 'Putty' that is supposed to help me garner access to SSH, but I cannot figure out how to use it.  I wish that they worked with Telnet.  Things would be so much easier.

Ha, I know what you mean. It was all kind of foreign to me until about a while back. My husband called one of his IT buddies and left a message on the phone saying, "Yeah, my wife is itrying to access a line command called...SH after using...what was that?" I was like, yeah, just give me the phone, honey. :)
