sundomains and positioning

P: n/a
hi
i have a wesite www.example.com
now i have my catalog of files

root:
es/ - (spanish version of the website
de/ - (german version)
fr/ - (french version)
img/
index.htm
....adn other files

now my question

is is better to ad these version to catalogs and search engines as
www.example.com/es
www.example.com/de
www.example.com/fr

or maybe

www.es.example.com (it would direct to root:/es/)
www.de.example.com (it would direct to root:/de/)
www.fr.example.com (it would direct to root:/fr/)

or other question
if i use these subdomains is it better to make three separate roots for all
the languages and for english the forth (now the main)
or better to have catalog like es/, de/, fr/ in the root?
best regards

How is this relevent to PHP?

Don't do a redirect on your homepage - most search engines wont index
the redirected page.

Language negotiation is probably the best way to do this.
http://ppewww.ph.gla.ac.uk/~flavell/www/lang-neg.html is a good set of
pages to explain this - it's better handled by the server rather
than PHP, though, if possible.
