linux file structure


Hi,

Can you please point me to a tutorial of the Linux file structure and directories organization? What does /bin have? /sbin? /etc? etc...

Thanks,

There's a section in this article that has some info files & the filesystem structure, mainly in section 3.1.3 (just scroll down a bit)
