Terminal folder name entry problems


I'm trying to change folders on my windows partition in the terminal. When I get to folders with spaces in the name (Documents and Settings) I cannot get linux to change into them. I've tried underscoring where there are spaces, but this doesn't work. How do I get these folders opened?

thanks
