Can anyone recommend a site that takes you through learning how to write batch files or just basic command line entries.  

I am so weak in that area it isn't true and if the front end of an OS has problems I am SOL.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Basic Scripting from TechNet, with links at the end of the article to build your knowledge right into expert status:

Command Line tutorial:

And a listing of commonly used DOS commands:

You may also want to look into PowerShell.  Newer and more powerful than basic DOS commands.  Probably will be more useful in the long run:
