So many folders
I've just installed SuSe 9.1 Personal. I worked with linux on school before but I certainly am no expert. My question is: where are all the different folders for? Like for example in /usr. Is there a listing of the purposes?
And the main reason I ask this question is: when I download rpm's or source tarballs, where do I keep this and where do I extract the tarballs to compile them. I want to keep everything clean and easy to overlook.
