That looks correct now, nothwithstanding the open question on the
additional files.

The difference between the two are the file permissions and the
ownership. Review the 1st and 3rd columns in the output.

More information on file permissions and ownership is available by
using:

man chmod

and

man chown

in a console window.

For general knowledge, it might be worth your while to pick up one of
the Fedora books available. Given the Fedora release schedule, some of
the details will be outdated with each new release, but the basics of
Linux operation and administration will generally be the same over time.

HTH,

Marc
