Each level of directories, or folders is separated by a 'slash' ('/'). The
can either be relative to the current location, or absolute---relative to
the "top" of the tree---in which case it starts with a '/'.
In this case, you would either need to use '/media/disgo', or just plain
'disgo' if you were already inside '/media'.
If you are in the shell you can press the [Tab] key to see what completition
possibilities there are:
paul at katu:/media$ cd [Tab]
cdrom/ cdrom0/ floppy/ floppy0/ sda2/ sda6/ Ubuntu 6.06/ xp/
