Many thanks for the answers so far but just another one, it's a good job you have a newbie section, anyway when I am in the Terminal window I have this at the side of my cursor

[root@localhost/root]#

so I type in my command
cd/....

I am wanting to look at my directories and everything else so when I press return I get this :

[root@localhost/root]#
Bash:cd/ no such files or directories

That happens everytime as if I have nothing on my drive but it does except ls -s, ls -l and the shutdown procedure and that's about it, I am using Redhat 6.0

help please.

The command you want to use is: "cd", not "cd\". There has to be a space between the command and the parameters you want to use. Also, the backslack "\" is use as as excape character, not for directory specifications as in MSDOS. You would use the forward slash "/" to navagate to the root directory. Just make sure you have a space between the command, "cd" and where you want to change directory to.
