    Mounting /Home after Installing???


    Ok here I am agian. I was wondering if it was possible to mount /home to another partition after the install is finished. When I was installing Mandriva it didnīt give me the option to. I have windows on a 80gig HD, then I chopped up a extra 20gig I had lying around into three pieceīs: One was a 5 gig section for the root, then a 1.5gig section for my swap file, then a 13.5 section for /home but it didnīt give me the option to mount it. So is it possible to mount it afterwards, or do I get to look forward to another install? UGH

    Its possible, just add it to your fstab, and the partition you choose will mount to /home upon boot, use df to ensure you are using the partition you want.
