Subject:   cd/private/etc does not work

Response to: cd/private/etc does not work

First, this article is quite old and only applies to Jaguar. So, if you are using Jaguar, your issue is a simple mistyping:


You want to enter the command (cd), a space, and then the path, thus:


cd /private/etc


and not


cd/ private/etc.


If you aren't using Jaguar, however, then you really should be looking at this series of articles instead:

Hope that helps,
