Where are the databases?

After having installed MySQL on a Windows machine, SHOW DATABASES shows test and information_schema. Yet, I see no files of these names anywhere in the MySQL directories. I'm curious about where it keeps them. More importantly, where do I put my own databases so I can access them in MySQL?

I'm the newest of the new to DB stuff, so please forgive my ignorance!
