    as in all linux, when you are trying to cd a dir with a space, ie your Programs file, it would look like cd /mnt/Windows/Program\ Files

    the same goes with all special Characters in Linux. try echo "hello"
    then try echo \"hello\" just to give you a little looksie. Cheers.

    No problem guys, hopefully i didn't just give out bogus info. it sucks being on Windows at the office and trying to answer questions about Linux. but i am about 98% sure thats how it goes. someone try and let me know if i am right or not, i hate giving out bogus snazz.
