Question NewToLinux

I'm logging in to a Linux machine using Telnet, what command do I use to get a listing of the directories on there?

Telnet is not secure. You can use ssh from a MS Windows machine using PuTTy, which is a free download. SSH is usually installed by default. Google for PuTTy, and PortaPuTTy; it does not even need to be installed and can be run from a thumb drive.

Good luck.
