Hi,

1) I have a linux Ubuntu 10.04.3 workstation
2) I am now at terminal --> jwhite@Ubuntu-10:~$
3) I type in: cd AAA/BBB/CCC/DDD/PPP/RRR
-The outcome: I NOW be at jwhite@Ubuntu-10:~/AAA/BBB/CCC/DDD/PPP/RRR$
4) My goal: I want to be at jwhite@Ubuntu-10:~/AAA/BBB/CCC/DDD/PPP$

5) My question: What command or Tools should I use? (Note: I try to type in " cd ", but it brings me to jwhite@Ubuntu-10:~S)

6) Thank you

tjie
