Solved command prompt trouble

Specs: Windows XP, 1.86 GB/ 2 GB RAM
I'm trying to get into the program files where I have a program called FlightGear and when I try to do that in the command prompt the directory stays on C:\Documents and Settings\user> I've tried cd and it just goes right back to the docs and settings, I can get it to switch to the D disc but that doesn't do me any good. I've typed in after the docs and settings....."program files"\FlighrGear\data\ and it comes back unrecognized or it says can't find path specified. I'm getting really frustrated. I've typed in cd many times in a row with no results. I'm really close to throwing in the towel. I could really use some 101 type help. Computer language I find to be very confusing. I relate it to mathematics, and I stink at math, so I need as easy an explanation as possible. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help. Send pictures!! LOL Signed...troubled in WI. PS. I'm running Windows XP on a D610 Pentium M 2GB RAM

✔ Best Answer

cd d:\ note: there are 2 spaces between.

i believe typing just cd.. and enter will keep moving you down the directory, you include the two periods

To HopperRox,
That did the trick! Thank you! The cd c:\ is the one that did it. Now all I have to do is figure out how to put the right commands in the right places so I can get FlightGear to accept the joystick I just got. I was able to go just so far, as far as I know, then when I was prompted to move the file I got stumped. I'm really not very good at this. I just can't seem to wrap my head around how it all works. I'm just not very good a speaking computer. Again, thanks for taking the time to answer my question, I really appreciate it. Regards, Vitocor01
