Get a good book on unix or visit some of the How-to style websites (linux and unix are basically all the same thing btw).

To be really specific you have BSD, which stands for Berkeley Standard Distribution, flavoured unix.

type man and a command and all of its uses will be shown. pwd shows what directory you are in cd (new directory) cd (nothing) goes back to the home directory. ls lists whats in the directory you are in. top shows what running. type exit when done. sh /etc/daily runs daily cron and needs admin password...

heres a few,
cd=change directory Example:cd /users/(username)/desktop

pwd=show current directory

mkdir=create a directory mkdir /users/(username)/desktop/(New Directory) , if the
new directory has spaces in it, be sure to put the whole thing in "double quotes"

cp (file location)=[copy file]/rename Example: cp /users/(username)/desktop/image.jpg /users/(username)/desktop/pictures/image12.jpg

mv=relocate a file Example: cp /users/(username)/desktop/image.jpg /users/(username)/desktop/pictures/image.jpg

ftp X.X.X.X=connect to that host via ftp

ed (file name) = edit a text file

login= login to a different user Example: login bob , then it will ask for bob's password

open (program/file location)= opens up a program or file Example: open /applications/safari.app

kill (process number) =closes the process/application

top= lets you view what processes are going on

shutdown = shuts down ur computer

shutdown -r = restarts your computer

These should get you going

I don't think putting a string a test inside a set of parathesis. I believe you need to place the string inside doulbe quotes ("), or even a back slash then a space ( .i.e mkdir new\ stuff)
