file tree question


I'm fairly new to linux

So far I'm running debian with fluxbox, and i'm using filerunner to manage my files

I was just wondering if someone would like to give me a basic run down what the 20 something directories under / do

just a basic rundown on the purposes and differences between
bin
boot
dev
etc
home
lost+found



etc etc

Using Google to search for "linux directory structure" gives as its very first listing

http://www.comptechdoc.org/os/linux/...ilestruct.html

which is exactly what you asked for. There are 5.79 million results; I'm sure a few of them will be useful to you.
