[mrtg] File locations

I have been running MRTG fairly successfully on Win2k for over a year. I
would like to try and run it over on a Linux Redhat 7.2 server.
I am fairly new to Linux or Unix so I am a little confused on where I should
place the files.
Under windows I have an MRTG folder and I have inside of that a \bin file
and a \data file. 
My \bin file holds all of the config files and all the executables.
The data file holds all of my .png files and the graph.html file
I run a few different instances of MRTG so I actually have a few data files
such as \data, \datalocA, \datalocB, etc

I would like to develop a clean file structure when I move to Linux and
since MRTG was already installed with Linux I am trying to find the correct
places to put everything. I have looked at the Instructions and documents
that I have found on the MRTG site, but they refer to using everything under
the /home file structure.
The default html location under Linux appears to be under

Do you just keep all of the data files and config files in this directory?

Could someone point me to a logical file structure to use with a  new MRTG
installation under Linux 7.2?

Thank you,
