How do I move my Home Folder?
I don't know how I did this but I have a Acer Timeline 3810T with a 500GB hard drive. I made a 8GB swap partition, a 40GB Root partition, and a 400GB or so Home partition.
Something must have went wrong at install. It appears my Home directory is part of my Root partition and my Home partition is blank. Can I change this?
It seems I'd have to copy the entire Home directory to my Home partition and then change something within Mandriva itself to look there. Is it this simple and how would I do this?

2. cp -R /home/* /mnt
3. add line to /etc/fstab

/dev/sda6 and then delete everything on (the old) /homethe sun is new every day (heraclitus)
