    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    yeah... I already checked that.... a list of all the commands is helpfull but I want more of a tutorial on how to do certain things... I don't know what those commands do unless I click on each one and find out for myself... (time consuming)

    maybe something a little more on the lines of... command line programming? something like what linux has... does winxp have that? or is it just linux and other unix based operating systems?

    Well for most things, you can do
    dir /?
    for /?
