sudo apt-get install mc (press enter)
mc (press enter)

Now you have a environment to move along the directories.

I posted a tutorial about RetroPie here: http://misapuntesde.com/post.php?id=109&lang=en

It's not difficult, believe me.

LoL i solved the problem :)

When i wrote "cd RetroPie/emulators/RetroArch/tools"
I didnt now that it was important to hit BIG or small letters on the keyboard
So i wrote every letter small and that is what cause the problem :)
Thnx for all the help anyway :)

I recommend you any linux or bash tutorial before ask any question here about basic use. ;)

Congrats for your success.
