I was reading through some old issues of Full Circle magazine, and I ran into this very handy guide written by ArsGeek on the Linux Directory Structure from the first issue.
The directory structure can be pretty overwhelming for new users. Reading various documentation can get very confusing if you do not understand the basic structure. For new users of Linux who are not familiar with the basic UNIX/Linux directory structure, this can be a very useful guide.
Be sure to check out Full Circle Magazine, which is an excellent, independent, community driven publication, for the latest and greats news, tips, and tricks in the world of Ubuntu.
