hbase-site.xml example in quickstart doesn't work in Linux
----------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HBASE-4858
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4858
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: documentation
         Environment: java version "1.6.0_23"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.11pre) (6b23~pre11-1)
OpenJDK Client VM (build 20.0-b11, mixed mode, sharing)
            Reporter: Bryce Allen
            Priority: Minor


Under Linux with OpenJDK 1.6, using a file:///XX URL in the config file creates a directory
called 'file:' in the hbase root directory. If I use a standard Unix absolute path, it works
as expected. This may work on other platforms, but it would be good to add a note in the example:

{code}
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="configuration.xsl"?>
<configuration>
  <property>
    <name>hbase.rootdir</name>
    <!-- Depending on your platform, this may create a 'file:' directory
         in hbase home instead of the desired behavior. Try using a standard
         platform specific absolute path instead. -->
    <value>file:///DIRECTORY/hbase</value>
  </property>
</configuration>
{code}
