Summary


This chapter has led you on your first steps in exploring the SUSE Linux file system. The file system is vitally important to how Linux works, and we'll go into it in much depth in upcoming chapters.

Here, you were introduced to elementary concepts, such as where personal files are stored and the basic rules that govern what you can and cannot do with files. We also looked at the principle method of accessing files via the GUI: the Konqueror file manager. Additionally, you learned how to run programs manually, as well as how to access any Windows partition or files that may exist on your hard disk or across a network.

In Chapter 13, we'll move on to look at typical problems that can arise with SUSE Linux, and see how they can be fixed.
