The "cd" Command
Cool, so now you know where you are. However, that doesn't really do much for you. What you need to be able to do is move from where your are to someplace else. To do so, you will use the "cd" (change directory) command which is described in the table below:
As you can see, the "cd" command simply takes a directory name as an option and works something like the following image in which we have changed our directory from "/home/selena" to "/usr/bin/"
Of course you can use relative pathnames with the cd command such as in the following example in which we will change directories using both relative and absolute references
Why not try a few out for yourself. Start by logging in and using the "pwd" utility to get your bearings. Then try moving around. Here are some interesting things to try... (remember to use pwd after the "cd" command so that you can clearly see the effect of the command)
