If I understand you correctly, you need to research the following commands:

cd - change directory
cp - copy files/folders
mv - move files/folders
pwd - displays the current working directory
ls - it lists the contents of a directory

This tutorial doesn't seem to assume any previous knowledge on your part:

Here is the link which contains basic linux commands: http://www.reallylinux.com/docs/basic.shtml

If you will go through the above link you will find other links embedded in the web page intending towards advanced linux command.

Here is another link which contain pretty much all the linux commands with their usage and syntax: http://www.oreillynet.com/linux/cmd/

I hope this helps.

I always recommend this tutorial to the shell (aka CLI, console, commandline), it is written with the beginners in mind: http://linuxcommand.org/index.php
