Okay, I've got an ultimate n00b question for you guys...a real stumper...what does QT mean by "create .profile in the home directory"? I created .profile like it said, but which directory is the home directory? Does it refer to the actual directory named /home, or does it refer to something else. I should have had this answered by my super-linux friend, but he likes to give misleading n00b-confuddling answers. I created it in /home, and ran ./configure, which seems to have run just fine, but haven't gotten a chance to make it yet cause I'm at work now. Does the location of .profile affect ./configure, or just make, or both, or neither, or stuff?
