it's ok steven, we were all terminal dummies at first ;)
linux is case-sensitive, there is a difference between Desktop and
desktop, to get a list of files, use "ls" , you will see what targets
you can cd to. once in a terminal, type the following:
cd ~/Desktop       (this will to the desktop no matter where you was)
ps2pdf mozilla.ps mozilla.pdf     (if the program is not installed,
you'll get a helpful message here)
feel free to ask if anything else went wrong :-)
