Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Right, that's what I feared, csh variants are completely different animals. Unfortunately I am not proficient with csh, and I am really no interested in learning it. I suggest you to install bash and run my command in bash. None of the snippets posted in this thread (by me and the others) will work in any csh variant, I think.
If you have it installed just running it should work
Then echo $0 should report "bash" instead of "tcsh". And my command should work inside that new shell. To go back to tcsh you can type "exit". By the way, did you install tcsh voluntarily or did it come by default in your distribution? Most distros nowadays ship either bash as the default shell (and maybe busybox's ash for init, which is lighter).
Whatever suits you, you can use tar or even cp. For example:
tar cf backup.tar orig_dir/
cp -R orig_dir/ dist_dir
I didn't enable compression because most images surely will already be compressed, so you are going to gain very little from compression and it will take much longer to do the backup if the directory is big. Once you have checked that the renaming went ok you can delete the backup.
