I have just started to write a small tutorial on how to install a game into
the filesystem hierarchy, according to the FHS
(http://www.pathname.com/fhs/2.0/fhs-toc.html), since thing are
handled very different than under DOS/Windows that IMHO could be usefull
for somebody. It will cover the following topics:

* Which files are used by a game
* Where to put these files
* How to handle extra levels and add ons
* How to handle cdrom data
* How to get this to work with automake/autoconf
(Anything important I missed)

A first draft is placed at:


Comments are welcome!
