Re: File Systems.

where to put a distribution?

If it comes with an OS distribution, then in /usr
If not, then in /opt

What about the same package, say ghostscript or netscape?
Should a package not go one place, irrespective of
whether you got it on a CD, or you downloaded the latest
package from the distribution site of the project/package?

Or would the same package only go to /bin if it is
packaged by the OS distributor?

Do we have a place where DOS or Win software is mounted?
For example a place where you can find truetype fonts?
