Question Multiple /bin/ and lost /Home/ProfileName/

Hi thanx for looking.

Im on my 2nd try with suse 8.2 pro, clean install with no updates and only firewall and network connections edited. Setup as follows:

/net - for temp files and d/l's

Suse 8.2
Konqueror 3.1.1
KDE 3.1

Under my only other profile (not root), when i click Home, from any menu in KDE, then i'm presented with /usr/bin/ contents. Strange i thought, so i went to /Home/MyProfileName/ and closed the window (Konqueror 3.1.1). Clicked Home again, and again found myself in /usr/bin/

For some reason whenever i click Home, my Home contents are not displayed.
Any ideas on how to make this open my Home directory when Home is clicked ?

Menu shortcut command for desktop and menu: "kfmclient openProfile filemanagement"

Clicking Home from a window of Konqueror does take me to the correct directory /Home/MyProfileName/

Clicking any of the desktop or menu based shortcuts, still takes me to /usr/bin/

My second bit of trouble is with my filesystem understanding. I thought folder names must be unique and duplicates were not allowed, somehow i have 3 /bin/ directories:


How is that possible, and why multiple (please if you know) ?

My last install only had 1 /bin/ directory (AFAIK).

Your help is appreciated, thanx for reading.
