[SOLVED] File name size restriction in console ??

Why doesn't console in Mandrake 10.0 recognise directories like "My Pictures" ?
Is there a file name size restriction like in DOS ? where it woul be something like mypictu~ ??

It should recognise them. If you have a space rember to escape it or surround the path in quotes:
cd /path/to/my\ pictures
cd "/path/to/my pictures"
