I've used iDisk here and there, and have had a few issues with it though it's worked by and large. I basically only use the document folder.

I was just wondering why it has folders for music, photo etc, just like the home directory on a Mac (I haven't used it recently.. hope I'm remembering right!). It can't be used as a home directory right?

No, it cannot be your home directory. However, maybe someone would want to store music, photos, and movies on their iDisk...
So back to... why the layout?
It looks like the photos that I publish are placed into the iDisk photo folder. But what about music or movies?

Also there's info stored in the Application Data folder.

Hope I get all this right

Backup - This is used by the backup programme
Documents - For you to place files
Groups - Groups from the .Mac days
Library - I beleive this is used by backup also, stores system settings
Movies - Free to use for files
Pictures - Used by iPhoto when uploading files
Public - A general area which you can share with others
Sites - Used for non iWeb webpages
Software - Apps that Apple provide for .Me subscribers (only seems to be backup)
Web - Used by iWeb

Backup, Groups, Library, Software & Web are not to be modified manually
Documents, Movies, Music, Public you can store what you want
Pictures I beleive you can store what yo want (but is for iPhoto, uploading from iPhone etc)
Sites is used by RapidWeaver/Freeway
