thank you guys,
yes i read the ls manual pages.
but couldn't find what i was looking for.
this is the first time i ever installed linux
and that went all good, but then i was faced with a command line
i found out on www.slackware.com
that it's bash,
and how to get into the manual pages and i found a few basic commands.
but i couldn't find what i needed to know in the manual pages.
