[OS X TeX] OT: LaTeX under Linux?

I am very happy to be spoiled by Gerben's installation and all the  
help from people on this list, but we are not all so "enlightened".

With this said, a student has asked me about getting a nice (La)TeX  
installation running under Linux. He says that he has installed teTeX  
and TeXLive, but still feels that a large number of things (e.g.,  
package, latin modern, etc.) are missing. Can someone point me to  
some resources that might help get him going with his TeX  
environment? For example, where does one install local files under  
Linux? Once they are installed, are there any paths that need to be  
added to configuration files so that TeX can find these local files?

Any insights and pointers are appreciated.
