Copying/Moving Site Definitions

I thought it would be helpful to have the locations of the files that
makeup a site definition on a SharePoint server.
Why post this: several times, I have had to copy/move site
definitions, that I did not develop, to other servers.
Things to note:
–> c:\…\ means c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web
server extensions\60\TEMPLATE–> Each language pack uses a different folder name (i.e. 1033 = English)

Site definitions can use style sheets located here:
c:\…\LAYOUTS\1033\STYLES

The style sheets can use images located here:
c:\…\LAYOUTS\1033\IMAGES

The site definition folder is located here:
c:\…\1033

The site definition XML file is located here:
c:\…\1033\XML

There may be some images used by the site definition here:
c:\…\IMAGES
