Partitioning Scheme

$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 6.5G 2.0G 4.2G 33% /
varrun 1014M 104K 1014M 1% /var/run
varlock 1014M 0 1014M 0% /var/lock
procbususb 1014M 124K 1014M 1% /proc/bus/usb
udev 1014M 124K 1014M 1% /dev
devshm 1014M 0 1014M 0% /dev/shm
lrm 1014M 33M 981M 4% /lib/modules/2.6.20-15-generic/volatile
/dev/sda3 65G 181M 61G 1% /home


1. When I install new apps, where will they be kept? Where SHOULD they be kept? Do I have enough space set aside for apps?

2. Is /dev/sda3 automatically linked to /home/joe folder? If not, how do I link /home/joe folder to /home partition?

Just installed Feisty.

user apps are usually installed under /usr. On your schema
/usr is under / so it will count against / available space.
As for /home, /home/joe is a subdir of /home, you shouldn't have to do anything as long as /home/joe is define on /etc/passwd as user joe home dir.
