What books and references are you using in the course? You will find answers to your questions in just about any Linux introductory text.

Regardless, got to http://tldp.org and get the Bash Guide for Beginners.

Also, some quick Google searches will find most of what you are asking.

You can get help with homework here, but you have to show evidence of your own work.

Hey, a degree in out-of-date-ology! I'm progressing to the point where I could get one of those without revision. If only my memory was better...

There are several that might be recommended for a Linux hard disk. For RH 7.2, that list would be rather shorter. In general, distrowatch has a big table that shows info on the filesystem support in the releases of various distros, so, assuming that you want something available for RH 7.2 and not the current answer, you probably need to look at that first, there being no sense in a 'better' fs that you can't use.

Please understand:
http://dhavalv.wordpress.com/2007/10...ilesystem-fhs/
(its got a nice picture!) and
http://www.pathname.com/fhs/

and then that question should seem trivial.
