Assuming you meant of your computer, the main directory of your hard drive. Commonly, this will be C:

But it could be different if your computer has multiple hard drives or hard drive partitions.

In regards to the game, it's the top-level directory of the hard drive you installed the game's files to. The default path is C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Vice City


C: = root directory
\Program Files = directory
\Rockstar Games = subdirectory (directory in a directory)
\Vice City = subdirectory (directory in a directory in a directory)

Whenever a file is referenced, you have the location (path) followed by the filename. Each backslash character that the path contains moves it one directory level deeper away from the root directory.
