The only difference is that in Linux "Programs" and "documents" are kept in separate partitions.
Linux does the following:
your fist HD is labeled hda
and each partition is identified by adding a number
hda1 is "/" (or root)
hda5 is swap
hda6 is "/home"
What happened to hda2,hda3 and hda4? Linux does this in case you have a big hard drive and want to segment your file system even more, you could have "/usr" on hda2 and "/var" on hda3 and so on. you may want to read up on the linux filesystem structure, it is worth the read
