at a prompt type:

ls

cd to change directories

These are some really basic commands, you might want to try and search for some basic howto's to know how to navigate thru a Unix type filesystem.

If you don't have a few minutes to review some of the basic commands, then you might want to hold off on the whole linux thing til then, or its just going to be frustrating and confusing to you.

I don't mean to come off rude, but most here would want you to know how to do the most basic stuff before asking questions. It just speeds up the process of answering your questions faster.
