Thanks requinix for helping me.
Cool. I understand the cd command.
When I look in finder under devices, there is an icon called 'computer', so would that not be the name of my machine? I am somehow thinking that I am running localhost as root?
If in fact localhost is the name of my machine, is there a way to change the name?
