How do you access and copy files to different partitions?
I have a dual boot system, one harddrive for Windows and one for Linux (10 gig). I am using the KDE environment (Linux Mandrake 6.5).
I have different partitions, e.g. hdb1,hdb5, hdb6, hdb7, hdb8, hdb9
When I originally installed linux, I installed the following partitions:
/ 1 gig
/home 3 gig
/var 2 gig
/usr 2 gig
/tmp 1 gig
Now I want to be able to install programs and data files where I have the most space but do not understand the system of directories. In Windows each partition is C:, D:, etc.
but in Linux it is alway /, /usr, /home, etc. and when you change to a different user it is /home/usr.
I need to understand how the /hdb1, /hdb5, etc partitions relate to these directories and how to control them so I put programs where they should go, data files where they should go, local user files where they should go, etc.
Have seen explanations of some of this but nothing tied together so I could understand it in terms of the above.
