Help with HP switch config

We just got two HP V1910-48g LAN switches, right out of the box.  I've consoled into it via Putty, and HyperT, and so far I've only been able to set the IP address, and enable security on the admin account.

I am unable to change its name, or enable Privilege Exec mode.  I know the CLI syntax is different than Cisco OS, but I'm confused because some of the legacy 3COM Comware OS commands aren't working either, such as system-view, etc.  

When I enter system-view command, it errors out with "Unrecognized command at ^ position."  The same error results when I enter the enable comamnd or the system name command.

Can someone please help me with the initial setup of an out the box HP switch?  I want to, at a minimum, set the name of the switch, set the clock settings, enable LLDP, enable logging, and backup the config.

Here's a summary command output:
==========================================
<HP V1910 Switch>summary

What specifically are you trying to do?

I believe it has a web interface on that switch

To set the hostname type the following commands:
Switch# config t
Switch(config)#hostname "NAME OF SWITCH DESIRED"

To set the clock stay at configuration mode and type the following command:
Switch(config)#clock set MM/DD/YYY HH:MM:SS

To enable LLDP run the following commands staying at configuration mode:
Switch(config)#lldp run

Logging by default is enabled and you can view the log file by running the below command. There is a lot of different things you can log so if you could be more specific we can help you out with that.
Switch(config)#log -a

Hope this Helps

Thanks, but my problem is that I'm still in what appears to be User Exec mode, and none of those commands work.  I am having trouble gaining access to Priv Exec mode to configure the switch.  It's not running Cisco OS, it's running Comware 5 OS.

When I type the command "system-view" it errors with "Unrecognized command at ^ position".  When I type the "enable" command I get the same error.  I need some help with legacy Comware 5 commands.
