yeah 4 noobs
Need a little noob help.
On the things that I know alot about, I help the newbs so hopefully on things like this, that I don't know alot about, kharma pays me back
Anyway, got a zipperd drive from DVR. Trying to unpack the mfs_ftp file on the tivo, but when I use the bash program in TivoWebPlus I can't get to the /var direcotry. If I type cd /var it executes, but doesn't give me a bash to then type the cpio command. When I click back I think it goes back to the root directory.
I'm new to Linux (duh), but still can't seem to find the way to do this using TivoWebPLus 1.3.1

PS To new posters; try to be descriptive in your subject line, too!
Thanks Lou for getting back to me.
I figured out my problem though and apologize as I learned I posted in the wrong forum.
My problem related to a separate piece of software.
Thanks again for offering to help.
... the rest of the community by sharing the details and solution of your problem. That way, if someone else runs into the same thing, the answer will already be here...
I wasn't able to connect to my box to use linux.
This can be done from the Run box in the start menu.
Do a search for Telnet for details.
