Thank you very much for that explaination. /usr/local for "all-user-installations", otherwise the home directory.

I am new here as well as to Linux, especially Fedora. I'll try to find out where to "install" application for my user only. What I'd like to install is not available via yum, it is an archive that has to be extracted somewhere. Can anyone tell me where this should be placed?

Thanks in advance. Oscar
