From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (27 SEP 03) [foldoc]:

cd

1. <operating system> {change directory}.

2. <networking> The {country code} for the Democratic Republic
of the Congo (formerly Zaire, {zr}).

(1999-01-27)
In this context it means the first one.

In practice to change your working directory to /foo/bar, you have to run command
Code:
cd /foo/bar
.
