Learning the Mac OS X Terminal: Part 1
Subject:   cd and directory names

OS 10.2.3

First time Terminal user.

The ls and pwd commands work but I'm having trouble with cd.

In my Users folder there's the standard Pictures folder.
In that folder I created a folder /directory called General Pictures.

I can use the cd command to get to Pictures but when I'm at

[localhost:/] myname%

I type

cd /Pictures/General Pictures

and I get back

cd: Too many arguments

I've tried a number of ways of writing the command but I've been unable to get to the general Pictures folder from within Terminal

What am I missing?
