Terminal from OS X install DVD

Hi guys,


Need some assistance with terminal.


I am trying to delete my sleepimage file from /private/var/vm through terminal which I loaded from the OS X setup but I am having problems.


It will boot up with -bash-3.2# and from what I understand as it is running from the DVD I need to change it to read from my HDD so I type cd "/volumes/OS X".


Now I try to navigate to /private/var/vm but it does not allow me to do so as it says the vm folder does not exist.


Am I doing something wrong?


It seems like it keeps reverting back to the DVD root...


If anyone can tell me the correct commands to get this file deleted it would be much appreciated.
