Are you looking for a diagram of the various directories, what they house and the boot/startup tasks?

Check my sig, the filesystem standards should contain what each directory does.

The things started when the machine boots are scripts called from /etc/rc.d/rc<runlevel>.d

Whats in there will depend on what services etc. you have running

The post just below yours is also helpful - http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=438289
The actions undertaken when a DE/WM are started varies respectively.

Oh! well that's ok then...

Homework is not allowed by the LQ rules, which i gather you didn't read when you signed up.

Go and check google, the idea is that YOU do the homework and YOU learn, not us, it will also teach valuable research skills.

a) The way the data is stored in Windows and Linux systems.
-- give me an example of an answer for this for windows.

Linux stores data in all kinds of different ways - files are stored on a file system. If you just want a lowdown on the file system, and how it works, that's quite simple. (i.e. fedora uses the ext3 file system where windows uses fat32. Ext3 is a lot like fat32, except it contains a journal - and supports file permissions.)

b) The boot tasks and start up tasks for Windows and Linux system.
start with "man boot" - at the bottom of that there are other man pages to read.
again, however, answers to this could be qualitative (the kinds of things to be done on boot/startup) or specific (a list of the actual tasks).

However: all this information is pretty much supplied with the fedora distribution.

As has been pointed out, we cannot do your homework for you. However, I note that you didn't ask us to. You just wanted a quick reference... right?

Simon bridge highlighted a valid point, you were asking for help on where to find the info so you could learn yourself (of course you might just be looking to copy and paste :P)

I will assume you are more proficiant in windows than Linux, if so, answer the questions for Windows, and then use google/books/other search enginers to apply it to Linux, you'll find that some things are similar, and some are better (possibly something worse if you try hard too).

Fedora (like most things on this earth) has a homepage where you can find docs, or searching these forums works wonders.
