    You need to change directory to the one that 'jre-6u2-linux-i586.bin'

    For example, if it was on your Desktop:

    Code:
    [.@localhost home]$ cd ./Desktop
    [.@localhost Desktop]$ mv jre-6u2-linux-i586.bin /opt
    cd stands for Change Directory.
    ./ means the directory you're currently in.
    ../ means the directory above the one you're in (back).
    Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
