Editorial GoboLinux is a distribution which sports a different file system structure than 'ordinary' Linux distributions. In order to remain compatible with the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard, symbolic links are used to map the GoboLinux tree to standard UNIX directories. A post in the GoboLinux forums suggested that it might be better to turn the concept around: retain the FHS, and then use symbolic links to map the GoboLinux tree on top of it. This sparked some interesting discussion. Read on for more details.

If you want to tweak the settings of apache to start with a specified flag or what have you...

Well, I might have to tweak the settings of Xorg.conf too. That's way more advanced, but if I've bought a new computer with an as-yet unsupported monitor there's fun I'll have to have regardless.

I might have to tweak /etc/fstab.

See any one of a large number of experts offering advice to non-experts online. Lots of settings have to be tweaked from time to time.
