This is your problem right here. For one thing, if you'll notice in the
directory listing, there's no dollar sign in the filename. For another
thing, the dollar sign is a very special character to the shell. If you
put it in front of something, the shell will try to expand an
environment variable, which isn't what you want here.

So try again, and this time don't type the dollar sign. Then if you have
more problems, post back here.
