You should care.  Read about the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard:

That's configurable.  RTFM.

I read somewhere that any manual needs to be read three times.  If you
understand in fewer readings, you're just reminding yourself.  If you
still don't understand in three readings, your knowledge base is not
large enough.

In addition to the Apache docs, read chapter 36 of The Rute User's
Tutorial and Exposition by Sheer, available as a dead tree or on-line at

Read chapter 16 of Running Linux, by Welsh, et al from O'Reilly.  Dead
tree only, ~USD35.

Apache does not require you to be a rocket scientist to configure and
run.  It does require *some* study on your part.
