Just for info, ~ is your home directory, so of course doing a "cd ~" will take you to your home.

Rather than post things like that on this forum, I would consider getting a copy of "Running Linux" from O'Reilly. That will get you up to speed on a lot of this stuff. I still use mine and it's really getting tattered;-) Sticky notes coming out of it everywhere... marked up... coffee stains. Just a suggestion.
