I recently moved from MS Windows - often the "Cut" function in Finder is greyed out.  How should I move files between directories?

Is there basic documentation available to ease the transition from MS Windows to the Mac (I just bought a Mac Air with OS 10.7.3)?


1. Even basic functions such as moving files between directories i.e. Cut & Paste is an issue - the Cut function is greyed out.

2. Some of the media is formatted using Fat32 as I share files between Windows compatible systems and the Mac.  I am unable to rename files on this media using the Mac.  Any suggestions?
