bash: cd: My: No such file or directory


Hi guys, Hey I have a quick question about not being able to access a file on my desktop or even in my Home Folder. I created a folder called My Documents and then inside that I created a folder called My Downloads.

When I download something I just stick it in there. Now when I open up a terminal window and ls I see [dgentry@localhost ~]$ I type in ls and hit ENTER
Desktop My Documents My Downloads
[dgentry@localhost ~]$ I type in cd My Downloads
and I get bash: cd: My: No such file or directory
[dgentry@localhost ~]$

It does the same thing with My Downloads..............

Hmmmmm, as an after thought, while I'm typing this up and trying to explaine myself. I decided to go up and remove those folders and create new ones called Documents, Downloaded and Music.

Well hot damn, I can cd into those. So I guess Fedora just doesn't like my use of theword My before the file name.

I'm used to using SuSe and I know I can do it in there.

any ideas on while it won't work with Fedora.

And btw, Fedora rocks! Man I love this.

You've to have protect spaces by backslash.

Code:
cd My\ Downloads
or just simple like this

Code:
cd "My Downloads"

AHHHhhhh!

I see the light and the error O my ways. So when ever I have a file with at least two words, just add a \to it and it'll be fine?... Groovy, what will they think of next?
