That is what supposed to come with my textbook. But since I bought this used it didn't come with any disks. That is why I am in need of it. 
Now why the class is using this old old program. That part I am not sure of.

In part, my point.  Why "specify" FC2 if any UNIX/Linux/BSD variant would work.  If the class is about grep, sed, awk, Bourne shell programming and the like, then >ANYTHING< would work.  If the class is about something less generic, then FC2 is a poor choice because it is so old.
