makes a good point about using a supported version of Ubuntu.

If you want to create a directory to organise things you should be doing so in your own home directory which will be something like /home/bill and not straight in /home. The directory /home is where the individual home directories for users are created so unless you are doing so for a specific reason you should generally not create directories there.
Usually though when you open a terminal you start off in /home/bill and it's indicated by the prompt saying something like "bill@ubuntu:~$" where the "~" sign shows you are in your home directory and you can change to your home any time by typing "cd ~" without the quotes.
