Thank you Joshua.  I was trying to avoid doing an install before I knew 
what was going to be installed, since it would be extra effort to remove 
stuff that got placed where I didn't want it.  After doing some more 
research, I suspected the purpose of these directories, and you confirmed that.

Thanks again,
