suse 9.0 working directory

Been googling for about 30min for suse 9.0 working directory & found way too much garbage to sift thru. Looking to load lifeboat & 1st install instruction states put in working directory. Question: When directions state put xxxxxx.xx in your working directory do they mean /usr/src, /usr/sbin or other dir?

Usually it's

/home/<your user's name>

except for root where it is


just type cd ~
and then pwd at your prompt to find out the quick and dirty way.

Of course in another way "working directory" also means the directory you happen to be in ... I'd rather take the above meaning.
