You need to find a command that would let you see files.

You have to find a way to see all of the files, using a Unix command and SSI.
That should be enough for you to at least generate the "You're on the right track" message.

you do not need to edit the page... you just need to put the correct code into the name field (i dont think that was a spoiler but if it is im truly sorry)

You can do everything using just the input name box. Just think back to mission 7, and keep in mind the directory you are supposed to be looking in.

Go to your windows explorer, and NAVIGATE to a directory. Do not type the path.
Then go to the adress bar and add "/../" (without the quotes). If you did it by navigating, it should take you to a familiar looking directory.


EDIT: Got it! It's so easy...
HINT: All you need are:
1) this site http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/howto/ssi.html
2) and this post http://www.hackthissite.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=78&p=2674#p2564
