    The root is at X:\ where X is the letter of your hardware. There is no different root for different homebrew.

    In computing root generally refers to one of three things
    root of a drive/directory structure or directory tree.
    Of a drive means things like c:\ or d:\ of x:\ in windows/dos machines.

    Of a directory structure/directory tree means the first directory in the tree, in the case of moonshl there will likely be a whole bunch of other directories the root of the directory structure but the root of the structure. Such terminology is not that common though as it is mainly reserved for drives.

    In unix like systems root is the user that can control everything, it also has a folder called root found in the root of the file system (generally called "/").

    If it tells you to put it on the root, don't put it in a folder.

    Just put it straight onto the memory card.

    Like a tree. Root.

    Though it's incredibly annoying when everysinglehomebrewintehworld wants you to put it on the root.
