U can try "man" for clarifiying with commands.just do:
Code:
 man commandname
^^ also remember "." files are hidden files as "$" files in DOS.and in Linux/UNIX-like only small letters(so no Mv) are used and SPACE must be btwn each command options(for eg: "mv <SPACE> -i) .even folders can be hidden using this way.
Code:
:~$ mv dir .dir
I think u need to see http://tldp.org and http://www.linuxcommand.org/
^ Hope that helps.also if ur new to Linux,let me remind u,ur not getting the privilages with newer Linux distros(Debian,Ubuntu,Fedora etc) running this ancient one.

follow the commands praka123 suggested.

And remember, the files starting with a "." are hidden files in all kinds of Unix type operating systems. Hiding files in this way does not provide real security. You might want to try using some encryption instead.
