And you are so stupid you make these total wrong statements. Of course the files are in the root or / directory since they are in their own partition.

Calling other people "stupid" when they are right and you are wrong is,
er, stupid.

Just because something is in its own partition does not mean that it is
in the root directory, unless that partition is mounted at the root of
the file system. Even if it were true (which it is not because the boot
partition is never mounted as the root of any file system) it would be
misleading because the terminology "root or / directory" unambiguously
refers to the root of the file system.

I'm frankly amazed that there is a single experienced member of this
list that still takes the time to read your posts and reply to correct
bad information. You should be thankful, really; but I suppose that's
too much to hope for.

And you and others keep thinking there is just one root directory in your computer. I removed the boot directory from the main root and put it in a whole new partition. Now this whole new partition also has a root directory. Guess where the files are located?
