DIR and LS command returning *s


Hi all,

Just installed slackware 8 on my older pc. did a normal installation but with no X components (if this makes any difference). problem seems minor but is annoying - when i use the LS or DIR commands they return lots of asterisks **** and very little else. any ideas appreciated.

thanks.

lang settings

Not entirely sure. i picked a British (UK) keyboard but didn't specify anything else, presumably English UK or English US. Is this what you mean? is there a way i can check?

cheers
