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.

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:
