'my documents' not a directory ?


I cannot open 'My Documents' from DSl.

I have mounted hda1 and can see all my windows stuff, but when i try to open ' My Documents ', i have got a message telling is not a directory nor a file.

Any idea ??

Everything else works, and i'm Root when trying

The backslash is an escape, used to make the shell print characters which would not ordinarily be printed...in this case, a space. So your command would be
cd My\ Documents/My\ images/

You could also use quotes:
cd "My Documents/My images"
