Some of you might remember when I did a few post on the Linux file system. If not, or you would just like to reread them just follow these links: part1, part2, and part3. I’ll admit that I didn’t finish this series as I had originally planned, but it does provide a good place to start learning. Maybe one day I’ll try and finish/improve upon this series, but I won’t hold your breath.
For those of you that would like to learn more about the file system you can either go to Google or you can run the command
man hier from the terminal. This will provide you with a general overview of each of the partitions for the file system.
