I am drawing image in GIMP and was wondering if the pixels can be moved without moving the whole layer, I just want to move a set of pixels lower on the layer.

You can select the pixels in question, cut/copy them and then move them around as needed.

I seem to be moving the whole layer instead of the pixels. I followed the directions from the GIMP site but came up short. I appreciate your help.

I just tried it now by using the rectangle select tool to define the area I wanted, Ctrl-X to cut it out, Ctrl-V to paste it back onto the screen and then you should be able to move it around.
This, of course, leaves a gap where the pixels used to be. You can use copy if you just want to duplicate them and relocate the copy.
