Well, for one thing, there should be a space between "cd" and the path to the file.

you are aware that BT5 was put together BY network security EXPERTS for use BY NETWORK SECURITY EXPERTS

if you are going to use it
please sign up for, and TAKE, the Offensive security courses
http://www.backtrack-linux.org/infor...training/live/
http://www.offensive-security.com/in...rity-training/

there is almost nothing for a "new to Linux" person in BackTrack
( except the possibility of standing in front of a Judge if one is not very careful )

Code:
cd /media/0839-00b7/aircrack-ng-1.1.tar.gz: No such file or directory
Actually aircrack-ng-1.1.tar.gz is not a directory but a gzipped archive. At first you have to extract it and most likely it will create a directory with the same name, without the suffix. You can verify it using:
Code:
tar tvf aircrack-ng-1.1.tar.gz
this will list all the files stored into the archive and their relative path. Then you can extract using
Code:
tar xvf aircrack-ng-1.1.tar.gz
Anyway, I agree with John VV: if you have doubts on this basic stuff, better to try another Linux distribution, more suitable for a beginner entry level. Mint? CentOS? You have plenty of choices. Good luck!
