keep files and build upon the structure by creating your own
directories. The user home directories are identified by the
Linux login user name and can usually be found under a parent
directory called /home. If the users on your server are sally,
bill, joan, and fred, you would find a home directory structure as
demonstrated below.

? /bill
? /fred
? /joan
