Where should what go?


Ok heres a question, I still trying to move from XP to linux (FC4 atm) but i can't figure out the tree.

Where should all the stuff go? Like all my appz when in "Program Files", what is the linux equvilant? Where should "My docs" go?

Please list some of the dirs in the linux tree and tell me what they all do, which ones i should never fiddle with and which do the above equal, etc.

this will help.

All your "My Docs" would go in /home/your-user-name directory.
