quick question on cisco ios

I had to make an entry in the config mode on my cisco 1841.  tested the entry and it is working perfectly.  I hit end and now type in "copy run start" to add it to my startup.

it is asking me     destination filename [startup-config]?  

what do I do here?

Agree with Ken. Whatever you do, DON'T type "yes" or anything else, just hit enter (unless you know what you're doing).

Otherwise, you'll get prompted to delete the contents of flash and from there it's pretty easy to lose the operating system.

Seen happen in almost every ICND1/CCNA class I've taught.

Click - Enter, or next time just type - "write", it will do the same thing.
