... standard4.1
The Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS) is described at http://www.pathname.com/fhs/. It consists of, to quote the site, a set of requirements and guidelines for file and directory placement under UNIX-like operating systems. They thus encourage the interoperability of applications, system administration tools, development tools, and scripts as well as greater uniformity of documentation for these systems. More GNU/Linux specific is the Linux Standard Base (LSB) with information at http://www.linuxbase.org/.
