And since you are new to Linux, the easy way to do that is to first type
cd /mnt/wi
Then hit <tab>, which should give you
cd /mnt/windows/
The cursor should be at the end of the line, so just add "P" and again 
hit <tab>, type "M" and again hit <tab>, etc. The shell will correctly 
insert backslashes into the path.

You will quickly figure out that if there are more than one choice when 
you hit <tab>, then it will not complete the path segment. Just hit 
<tab> again and the various matching choices will be shown. Just type a 
couple more letters so that the algorithm will be able to figure out the 

This may look a bit complicated when written out, but you will quickly 
find that it is an easy thing, and wonder how you lived without it :-)
