For unix-like systems there are two terms in general use:
absolute path: any path that starts with a /
relative path: a path relative to the current directory. This is any path that does not start with a / Some examples might be src/projects/foo/bar.c or ../include or ./program

On linux/unix the path might have a path that resolves to a different drive
Technically true. For example, you might have /home mounted as a separate drive - it might even be a network drive. For the average user, the file system is homogeneous, that is you can navigate to any point in the file tree with out having to know if it's on a separate drive/partition,networked-fs, etc. Its only really an issue for applications that may want to move files from one location to another, as you can not use link() and unlink() to move a file to a different place in the file tree if the source and target are in different file systems.

Edit: It should be noted that file systems may be mounted at any level, so you might have a partition mounted as /home, and another partition mounted as /home/games, and yet another mounted as /home/games/adventure.
