    how do I use new drive for old folders?


    I just installed a new hard drive and want to use it to house folders such as /home or /usr and such. How would I do that? Do I have to copy over the contents from the current folder (/home as an example) to the new partition and set fstab to mount it to "/home" and I'm good to go?

    What about those partitions that are labeled /home and / and /usr?

    Do I just change what it says in fstab from LABEL = /home to like /dev/hda1 and such?

    And this would probably be best done while under knoppix so stuff isn't mounted, right?

    . . . Just trying to make sure
