I know for sure I never had to deal with editing a known hosts file. Regardless, I figured it out on my own. Thanks.
This is Linux (or mac or any other *nix) -
The man(ual) command is your friend - use it.
I.E:
man ssh
Plus there will be a list of "see also" with the manual section numbers. Use "man" on those also.

If you don't have a *nix installation - enter the same into a google search box - google knows where to find every page of the *nix manuals.

P.S: If your on a Mac - then you at the home of OpenSSH (OpenSSH is a BSD project app. - just ported to everything else in the world).
