How to set up media center directory structure

I'm using freevo on Ubuntu and have my drive partitioned as follows:

1) 10 Gb -- Ubuntu
2) 1 Gb -- Swap
3) 10 Gb -- XP (only for diag and troubleshooting, not important)
4) 345 Gb -- media partition

As you might have guessed the latter is for content, but how should I mount this on the file system? What would make sense and why? I've never really been able to get my head around the linux directory structure in general (var? etc? opt? usr? ...huh?), so I'm really at a loss.

Are you asking how or where?

I would just normally put it somewhere in /media
