Use spaces around the name eg: ls 'system files'.
Be aware that most Unix/Linux cmds do not cope well with this scenario ie try to avoid using spaces in names if possible.
edit: oops... yes i meant use quotes....
BTW, I think myriad-zero means leading backslash ie \
The advantage of using single quote marks is that if the dirname is stored in a variable. you don't have to parse it and insert the leading \'s.
