I'll start
/etc/everything
J/K
/etc/rc.d/rc.local for adding stuff after init
/etc/modules.conf for drivers(modules)

They're usually in /etc or in users' home directories. Any .fetchmailrc (or .kderc etc) file in your system.

And for boot, I'll give the obvious:
/boot

Kernel modules:
/lib/modules

Cool
