Try this site for basic linux info:

Or perhaps you are after a description of the uses for each of the main directories (eg /bin, /etc)

can you work on you thread names a bit more.

a thread named "also" is unlikely to be beneficial to anyone else that has the same problem.

Maybe naming the thread "explanation of directories" would be better.
