FC2: Install folder?


I am a supernewbie at Linux. I am currently using Fedora Core 2. I was told this is a good place for newbies to begin.

My question is: Where do I install my applications?

Applications generally go into a bin directory (/bin, /usr/bin, /usr/local/bin, etc.) and their accompanying libs go into the equivalent lib directory. This isn't a hard and fast rule, though. Software you install from RPM or compile from source will know where to install itself (and you can override this, if you so choose).
