important directories in linux

Posted 02-20-2010 at 06:19 AM by raju.mopidevi

Different distributions have different directory structures, despite attempts at standardization such as the the Linux Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS) organization.
Important directories
/bin -
essential UNIX commands such as ls, etc. Should contain all binaries needed to boot the system or run it in single-user mode

/boot -
files used during booting and possibly the kernel itself are stored here

/dev -
contains device files for various devices on system
