i am beginning a notebook on how to do things in ubuntu.  i would
appreciate some help.

i need to rename a directory and copy another directory within my
/home.  i am also copying my thunderbird profile from the windows
version into the tbird directory.  i have the path where to copy.

remember, i'm a babe lost in the woods when it comes to the command
line.  i also need to do this from root?

would someone show me how to do this, so i can add the code to my notebook?
