Directory Tree

At the risk of coming across as fairly clueless once again ...

...could somebody do me a big favor and post some info on file and folder locations within the Iliad directory tree?

Linux folder names mean very little to me and I have the hardest time using the otherwise extremely useful emelf port to navigate my way around. All I want to do is copy and/or cut/paste files between the assigned locations (books, news etx.) and the CF and SD card. Since a lot of the ported software runs of the CF card, I've been able to figure out how to get there - but where the dickens are books/news/documents/notes? And what are the other folders for? And which ones should I really, really stay away from?

Help!

For the unix/linux specific file hierarchy see:

or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filesys...archy_Standard

And just a basic rule of thumb: don't touch anything unless you know exactly what it is.

Thanks a lot, that was really all I needed - never in a million years would I have looked in mnt/free.

I really must acquire some basic Linux knowledge, thanks for the links!
