advice needed


as you have guessed by now this is a newbie question

what is the BEST way to setup the file (or folder) structure with the *nix environment.

i have read several methods but NO one knows it best like the masses themselves so the question is put before you

here are my goals and please respond

i am running OpenBSD 3.5 and i would like to install the following apps:
JJFNMS
Nessus
dsniff
Snort, SnortReport & Acid
MTRG
and others

i have installed each of the above but they always take special treatment to get the to work. I have re-installed the os and each app seperately but now it's time to get to the task

I am an admin so if there are any favorite apps let me know.

and one last item; ANY xcellant guides would be GREATLY appreciated

thanks to all!

buddy

As this is a question about *BSD and not an introduction thread, I have moved it to the *BSD forum.

Use the ports/packages to install software when at all possible.

Read man hier for FS organization standards.
