File System Hierarchy

Acquaintance with the Unix/Linux file system hierarchy is necessary. The hierarchy doesn’t change often, but some Distributions(distros) prefer their unique blend.

Derivatives from a particular architecture like fedora from RedHat, Ubuntu from debian, doesnt change much.

Man pages like hier, proc will help a lot. Invoke as
$ man [hier/proc]. They will work with all major distros.

The most important are the configuration files for various packages like Apache, Grub, Fluxbox, Emacs..
