Installing Mac on a PC

Currently Im trying to put Mac os X Leopard on my pc useing the hack Brazilmac and the usb thumb drive patch. I succefuly installed it but am having trouble patching in terminal. The instructions say "browse to your thumb drive then type in the following commands"

cd ..
cd ..
cd Volumes
cd Patcher
cd files

I don't know much unix (dos guy) but I think that you have to mount the drive? So if anybody knows how access a usb drive in terminal (or unix)and then use those commands while in that drive, please post .

Ask on insanely mac forums. They have the answers to these dubious antics.

cd is to change directory. If you're in the terminal, cd .. twice is probably to get you to the root directory and they want you to browse to /Volumes/Patcher/files.

For example, type "cd .." and press enter. Then do it again. Then type "ls" and press Enter. Is there anything listed? If you see Volumes, you should be able to cd into it "cd Volumes" and the same with every directory after that. Hope this helps.

You might want to mess around with a linux distribution some time and get down the basic commands of browsing, file management, etc.
